Graham Turns It Out Brother Party DSA To Sponsor Red and White Day Warner by Gloria J. Ross As the man said, “it wasn’t nothing but a Warner Brothers’ Party.” A Universal Jam. It was the Pre-homecoming celebration, with Fat Back Band and Larry Graham and Graham Central Station. It was Friday night, October 24. And it was ba-a-a-a-a- a-a-d. The show opened with the Fat Back Band, a group out of New York City. Their presentation was a combination light and sound show, and for an opening band, it was excellent. They built the pitch of the audience up, and prepared them for the king attraction: Graham Central Station. Fat Back is composed of seven players. They have been together for seven years. Their lastest single is “Yum-Yum,” and they will be releasing a new album soon- “Raising Hell.” Though Fat Back Band was good, they were not what audience had come to see. And when Larry Graham and Grahama Central Station came on stage, the crowd roared with delight. GCS opened with an introduction, in which each member introduced himself and his intrument. As the members sang, slides of the group and each Genia individual member flashed on three huge screens behind the band: The top-hatted Hershell, the seductive Chocolate, the grooving Larry Graham. The group then went into a little ditty that the audience was familiar with: “We’ve been waitin’ for so long. We want to play for you our little song.” And play they did. GCS took off on a whirlwind that didn’t let the audience drop for a moment. With tunes like “(You don’t miss your) Water,” and “Can You Handle It,” the packed Coliseum swayed with the jammin’, pulsating beat of the band. It was as if GCS was composed of over 2000 members, because most everyone in the audience knew the songs, moved to the rhythm and danced to the beat almost as well as the band itself. With GRAHAM CENTRAL STATION flashing in neon lights in the background, Graham invited four members of the audience on stage to talk “Grahamula” in a syncopated vocal number. One highlight of the show was the group’s presentation of “Release Yourself,” an all time favorite, where Graham and the audience both really got off, with tamborines clanging both onstage and in the audience. Graham’s call for energy led to three minutes of constant screaming by the audience, from which Graham Central Station went right into their thank you song to their record company, “It Ain’t Nothing But A Warner Brothers’ Party.” And with that, the group exploded into another song in which the audience and the group were worked into a frenzy. When the group left the stage, the crowd in the Coliseum was dripping with perspiration. Larry Graham and Graham Central Station had come on in a flash, and they left the stage smokin’. Chuck Davis Dance, Co November 18, 1975 The Day Students Association has, in past years, sponsored Red and White Day. This is a day set aside to boost school spirit while preparing the Rams for a fantastic homecoming. On this day, the DSA Queen has the pleasure of representing the association by leading the mini parade, through the campus. The parade, which consist of the cheerleaders, the letter girls and the band, starts at Hill Hall, and continues, marching in soulful rhythum to the gymnasium where a pep rally is held. During the pep rally a host of spirited events take place. The cheerleaders bring the Rams to their feet, cheering with enthusiasm as the Ram football players are introduced. As the Rams are in the spirit of homecoming, the spark is uniquely set off by the WSSU marching band. They prepare to celebrate the Rams victory by burying their dead comrades. This year the WSSU kindergarten will crown a Mr. and Mrs. Ram. It seems that Ram spirit has no limit! The DSA will have various groups and fraternities participating in Red and White Day. These groups will put on shows with the best promoters of school spirit receiving $25, $15, and $10 cash prizes. Five judges will select the winners. All organizations are asked to show their school spirit by competing. Day Students who are interested in helping with the sale of balloons and pom-moms are asked to contact any officer of the DSA or Mrs. Maurice Johnson in the enrichment center. Day Students are reminded that this is their special occasion and are asked to please participate and support the Rams. The DSA is requesting all students to wear Red and White. On Nov. 14 show your school spirit. The DSA congratulates Miss Pamela Miller, DSA Queen of 1975-76. Start preparing now Rams for Red and White Day.
