I remember it with clarity. In fact, our very own Stepfather Of Soul..Jason Stone did an incomparable delicious blog on Big Bill Hill, including an actual aircheck from one of his shows in 1967:
Check it out...

Center cut pork chops 68 cents ?????? Those were the 'Good ole days' for sure :)
Wow, thank you for sharing this. Chills are running down my spine, just listening to the show. This brings back such great memories. I was really little then, but I have an older brother & sister that I would watch the show with. I remember them dancing in the living room while the show was on Channel 26. If it wasn't for my brother & sister, a lot of things from the late 60's & early 70's I wouldn't even know.........Thank God for the memories!
See, this is why i wish i was around back in the day...I would have been eating this stuff up...LOL. This is great
I thought that I was the last one left that remembered "The Big Bil Hill Show" I grew up on the West Side of Chicago first in the Henry Horner homes off Damen Avenue and Lake Street then Polk and Congress. We finally relocated to the Western Suburb Maywood. The show in the Basement was so great because when we finally moved in to a home I could really relate to the shows concept now The Crate was too funny but the fold up card tables...When Don who was also a former Chicago police officer and radio disc jockey created and produced "The Sooouuul Train Show" I still trip and smile when thinking of the opening shot of the show with a real train coming down the tracks talk about how far we've come with videos.
And let's not forget W.L. Lillard who was also first a police officer His show was great as well but this really takes me back now all these names come to mind Purvis Spann "The Blues Man" "The Real Steel" Richard Steel and My Girl Bernadine C. Washington

If you didn't listen to WVON back in the day...It really was our voice not only Great music but it was The benchmark for The true Urban Radio of today which spoke from our perspective of the news and the talk shows...thanks as Minnie would say for the "Walk down memory Lane"
I remember Big Bill Hill the real title of the show was Red Hot & Blue.
Friday's at 10:00or 10:30pm. We had to try and stay up that late, I had lots of friends who were on the show carloads would go down to the station {Ch 26} where they say the dance floor was the size of yo moms living room. They would make up dances to do on the show a favorite was Stop the Love You Save bythe Jackson 5. Every blackgirl group in every neighborhood in Chicago had a dance off that.
I alsoRemember the White Dancing Girls --My mother used to say they were hookers. I still remember those pitiful looking chicks with their go-go boots on and their hotpants and mini skirts.
Dons CedarSupper Club was one of the sponsors he would be on there sometimes --I think he was a goodfella if u know wat I mean-- Big Bill would introduce the girls as the "lovely ladies" from the Don Cedar Supper Club. Another sponsor was some ratty furniture store on the Westside.
Will post more as I remember.

Does anyone remember when Soultrain was filmed in that same studio? Thats where it started yet they never mention it on TV. Why?
Can anyone can tell me how to get a copy of the big bill hill dance show tapes. I used to dance onthat show with my sister and we just want to know if we find a copy of the tape.
Yep I believe it was.

Indonesia dumps plans for high-speed rail line: ambassador

Visitors look at scale models of Chinese-made bullet trains during an exhibition in Jakarta, on August 13, 2015 Indonesia has unexpectedly dumped much-vaunted plans for its first high-speed railway in favour of a slower and cheaper rail option, in a blow to Japan and China who have been fiercely competing to win the construction job. President Joko Widodo was expected to award either China or Japan the multi-billion contract this week but instead the government announced Friday the project had been shelved, citing cost and feasibility concerns. Chief economics minister, Darmin Nasution, summoned the Japanese ambassador on Friday to tell him that Indonesia would pursue a medium-speed rail option and throw open the bidding process to other competitors.
