  4. My Mother Doris Trotter says:

    My Mother back in 1970-71 was a Soul train dancer. At first it was kind of hard believing her since she now lives in Alabama. But one day I was looking at some Soul train reruns and there she was dancing her heart out. I showed her the videos cause they have them on You tube and we watched a lot of videos of her dancing on Soul Train. I have to say my mother is still till this day one dancing lady! Thank you Soul Train cause her spirit for dancing is still there. She said those was the good old days of her life. She had lots of fun met good people famous and non famous along the way.
    Thank You Soul Train,
    Doris and Jowanda Trotter

    My Name is Will, I was a dancer on soul train from 87 to 93, we had the honor of bringing in the new jack swing and hip hop. I had a great time as a dancer on soul train, I also met a lot of cool people, A.J. Will, Steve, Greg, Chirstal, Lou ski, Monique, star,Victoria,Nelly, and the staff of Soul Train. Big ups Eric Kasem, Tony, Marco, betty, Whenever we had filming for that weekend here how my day got started, 7 am barber shop, 12pm at Soul Train, then after Soul Train on saturday nite we go to the club to dance and work on new moves, then leave back home by 3am then back up on sunday morning filming again. Oh yeah we also always go out on Friday as well so by monday we were very tried, but a lot of fun

    I am trying so hard to find footage of Soul Train when it was in Chicago back in the early 70’s I was on the show as a back ground dancer for the artist “Lonnie Brooks” performing a song titled “The Flip” based from the Flip Wilson Show. If someone could please help me locate this footage I would be so grateful.

  33. Crystal says:

    I danced on the show from 1976 to 1980, and I enjoy watching Soul Train today as much as I enjoyed it back in the day. I can’t wait to see the new Soul Train create that great platform once again where the best and brilliant can shine. I saw a LOT of diversity in my 13 years dancing on the show – in both the staff and the dancers. From what I could tell the buck definitely stopped at dance ability and on-camera personality as the main criteria – and not race; the show was a melting pot already in 1976 when I got there. Honestly, I saw a rainbow of culture, every kind of culture you can imagine was in the studio in some capacity. There were many mixed-race dancers. As the show developed from season to season you can see the diversity in the acts on the show and the new faces among the dancers. It’s still such a “good time” to watch Soul Train. When the phrase “the hippest trip in America” was coined – they got it right. Every show is a super hip production, uniquely tailored from the first beat of the theme music and the first frame of video to the fade out on a great dancer closing out the Soul Train Line … leaving the audience glued and wanting to see more. That’s how he got us hooked. It’s a rather magical show in many respects. Sending love to the legacy … live on. Live strong.

  34. Kelli says:

    I saw white people dancing on “Soul Train” starting in the ’80s. That shows its massive crossover appeal. That’s why I have been so livid when people act like the show and Don Cornelius was a black thing solely, b/c it wasn’t. It brought people together of all ethnic groups.

  35. TIMCOX says:

    speaking of Soul Train lines, everytime i witness soul train lines these days in the current-day 2000s, the participants don’t do it correctly. they fail to line up women on one side; guys on the other. Plus, you must rock back and forth while you await your turn to burn the dancefloor. therefore, i have an attitude when i see soul train lines done incorrectly … sorry, that’s just the way i feel about doing something so important, WRONG !!!! take note people, and respect the soul train line.

  36. Lori says:

    I grew up with Soul Train couldn’t wait for it to come on! So when I see comments about not seeing any white ppl BOO TO YOU! If ur truly a fan this was about celebrating music and dance not color.! Thank you Don & Whitney for touching my soul! R.I.P. but u’ll live on forever.

  37. Hello,

    Don was a master – gone too soon! RIP.

  40. Keith Camper says:

    I danced on Soul Train back in the early 80’s as a guest to one of the regular; I also won the scrabble board (Dorothy Dandridge was the word to unscramble). Don’s contributions to the dance community will be missed. Every 70’s party I have been to the Soul Train line is formed.
    RIP Mr. Cornelius

  45. Roselyn says:

    I looked at soul train tonite on bounce TV. It comes on every nite and they show the old shows and the new ones, but I prefere the old ones. I love looking at their fashion and the way they use to dance. Im glad they put it bk on TV.

  46. Felice Ballard says:

    I can remember Soul Train from the sixties. I am a baby-boomer and I love the trends from the sixties. I will always remeber the train lipne and the fashions of clothing that they wore and do you know that they are in fashion to this very day. The sixties will always be with us because the trends still exist.

  62. Stacy says:

    I am a big fan of the old Soul Train episodes of Chicago and also The Big Bill Hill Show in Chicago. I see where we can find old Soul Train episodes but are there any episodes of The Big Bill Hill Show from WCIU channel 26 back in the day?

  63. i am asking you don cornelius please bring soul train back on televison in the new milleunm and to keep it old school. P.S. please bring soul train back to tv.

  64. Rudy Valentino says:

    I would like to know why Joe Cobb’s name is never mentioned or associated with Soul Train…Anyone who knows the history of Soul Train know that Mr. Cobb’s sceam is synonymous to Soul Train including Mr. Cornilius. The scream is Joe Cobb, why is his name and his scream omitted from this historical show, he should be included, as well as mentioned on the Soul Train Awards presentation. Sound like someone has some serious problems with this…WHY?????

  65. leroynorwood says:

    i am a big soul train fan since the 1980’s i was just wonder when can we see don cornelius on the 2011 soul train music awards.

  66. Travon says:

  68. Dave says:

    I was in reference to Pic #1. And why no pics of the real FIRST white artist to appear on Soul Train, Dennis Coffey in 1971 (contrary to reports that it was Elton John, David Bowie, or Gino Vanelli) ???

  69. Dave says:

    Who is this group in the pic (I’m sure I’ll kick myself once I find out)?

  70. Michael Kincaid says:

    I am 62 and use to watch Soul Train, Wiskey a go go, Shabang, 9th street west, and American Bandstand.

    In a discussion with friends we all noted with the expection of an japaness girl we did not remember seeing anyone other than young african american kids.

    Are we wrong.

    I danced on Bandstand, Wiskey a go go, and Shabang. Watched Soul Train all the time to learn new moves, but I don’t remember any other kids.

    Can you re educated an old man

    Mike Kincaid
