song a Real education.
It's Your Life, U Know,a song that
is a education for participants. Too Sweet is consider a cross between Joe Tex, Ottis Redding, James Brown and Bruce Lee.
When performing, he is just that exciting. The moves he makes, and the way he spins a lyric while performing is a test to
good entertainment. Even at 70 years old, he still got that kick.
Too Sweet has come a long way from a DJ in Alabama, hanging out with the likes of Tall Paul, Shelly The Playboy,
and Dr. Blues of wynn Radio in Birmingham. E manny Clark and Chatty Hattie of Wgiv in Charlotte and Larry Hayes and DJ Manny
of Wuss in Atlantic City. Then add the Joe Franklin show with Tiny Tim and Uncle Floyd show. Putting all that experience in
