Welcome to a (mostly daily) newsletter of recommendations from Todd L. Burns. In every email, I suggest some things that I find interesting. Maybe you will too…

Special Bobby Caldwell Edition!


Bobby Caldwell - What You Won't Do for Love

This was the first dance at my wedding. It was tough to find a song that I liked an incredible amount, wasn’t cliche, and had lyrics that met the moment. But this one did all of it.


The White Lie That Broke Bobby Caldwell on Black Radio

Oddly enough, I hadn’t really thought about this article we had published on RBMA Daily before our wedding. But it’s one of the more fascinating tales that I ever got pitched.

Old myths have a way of sticking around. Especially the one about Bobby Caldwell being black. It’s been [more than three decades] since Caldwell broke through with the soul classic “What You Won’t Do For Love,” and yet, some are still shocked when they find out the singer is white.
