Aretha Franklin

Question of the Day: Titles and Nicknames

by Corny O'Connell

Aretha Franklin turns 72 today. (The big birthday bash was Saturday at the Ritz-Carlton in New York). Aretha - The Queen of Soul - is one of just a few artists who've earned such a title. What other artists and bands are known by an unofficial title or nickname? Or can you propose a new one for someone? Let us know in the comments below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Aretha Franklin "Soul Serenade"

James Brown "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag"

The Rolling Stones "Monkey Man"
