We miss him dearly, but he will always be with us. This year, BERNIE WORRELL, the Wizard of WOO, would have turned 75. So, we brought together a couple of his collaborators and fans to spin some funky tunes created, inspired, or influenced by our own dearly-departed, pioneering Funk Legend. DJ Logic, Vernon ReidDJ Sugarfree BK and Starchild & The New Romantic hit the decks in a musical toast to the Man.
