Dean Richards’ Sunday Morning

Frankie Knuckles – The Godfather of House

The Godfather of House music and Chicago legend Frankie Knuckles passed away very suddenly on Monday night.  Dean Richards invites Sun Times music writer Mark Guarino on to the show to pay respect to a man who made such a huge contribution to the music and club scene in Chicago from the late 70s onwards and has forever impacted the direction modern dance music will take.
