Steve Arrington joins host Stephen Kallao

In the 60’s and 70’s, Dayton, Ohio emerged as funk music hotbed – And Steve Arrington was one of the players bringing the funk to the masses and getting people dancing. He was the drummer and vocalist in the band Slave, and next, he fronted and produced his own group, Steve Arrington’s Hall of Fame. Now he’s back with a new solo album, called Down To The Lowest Terms: The Soul Sessions. We’ll hear about Arrington’s 20-plus year hiatus from music to focus on his ministry and how he worked with new producers to update his classic sound.
