Philly Sound at Phillies Game

In a Black Music Month celebration, the Phillies are paying tribute to Gamble & Huff and the Sound Of Philadelphia before Friday night's game against the Minnesota Twins at Citizen's Bank Park. Among the honorees will be Billy Paul of "Me & Mrs. Jones" renown (that's his three-sided picture, from back in the day), WDAS radio legend Joe "Butter" Tamburro, original Intruders Phil Terry and Robert "Big Sonny" Edwards, and Kevin Eubanks, the stepping-down Jay Leno guitarist who's in town to get a plaque with his name on it put in the Philadelphia Walk Of Fame. There will be a free show outside the park at 5 p.m. with the Intruders and the great Russell Thompkins Jr. of the New Stylistics, among others.
