<p>This makes me very sad. I loved this show ...</p>
<p>Aww, geez. That is sad. :(</p>
<p>I used to LIVE for this:</p>
<p>Soul</a> Train 1974 - YouTube!</p>
<p>And yes, I did take many of my High School fashion cues from the show.</p>
<p>Clothing cues, no. Dance moves, absolutely!</p>
<p>IT is all coming back to me! Gosh I loved dancing!</p>
<p>By the way, notice that EVERYONE is slim.</p>
<p>Yeah, cuz they danced their asses off. I was slim then, too. Admittedly, I was a disco queen.</p>
<p>My dad was a junior high and high school principal. I remember watching Soul Train and American bandstand every Saturday with him. He watched it as a business tool. He wanted to know exactly what he would be hearing and seeing at the school dances the next weekend.
Of course when it was over he would turn the stereo to Frank Sinatra.
RIP Don Cornelius.</p>
