“One of the most creative historians of funk, jazz and R&B music today is the inimitable Howard Burchette. Not only a radio personality, Howard is an artistic philanthropist who donates countless hours to the preservation of indigenous music and the legacy of those who create it. For years, The Funk Show has entertained many of the most influential international recording artists: Ben E. King, Freda Payne, The Commodores and other great performers have dawned the MIC and shared compelling musical experiences with Howard and legions of radio listeners. Since the inception of his career on WNCU FM’s award-winning “Saturday Evening Show,” Howard has remained committed to the artists who’ve shared tasteful ear-candy with the world through their timeless music. The Funk Show is informative and musical, showcasing the great classics that we all love to listen and groove to. He’s hosted sold-out concerts and music festivals featuring world-class performances, and he serves as a knowledgeable conduit to performers and fans.The Funk Show plans a national presence and will capitalize on the enormous interest in funk and other music forms. Howard’s public appeal is exceptional. A national music publicist said: ‘Burchette is one of the kindest people I’ve met in radio; he’s respected by industry insiders and artists.’ For years to come, Howard will continue to present to the public the music that defined a generation of aficionados – FUNK!”
