"Unsung" TV One's Music Biography Series

By Holly Wood

TV One's music biography series, "Unsung," is a series of hour-long programs spotlighting artists whose careers ended abruptly or whose musical contributions have been shortchanged by history. "Unsung" is in its third season and airs Mondays at 9 p.m. (wow, that's against "Two and A Half Men." "Unsung" focuses on black acts from the 1970s and 1980s that rarely caught the attention of mainstream media.

"Unsung" has featured DeBarge, Bar Kays, Bootsy (William Collins), Donny Hathaway, Shalamar, Rose Royce, Zapp, Florence Ballard, Minnie Ripperton, Phyllis Hyman, Sylvester, Stacy Lattisaw, and Teena Marie, among others. "Unsung" is independently produced by A. Smith & Company Productions (Mark Rowland, co-executive producer).

I can't wait for "Unsung" to get around to Environment Man & the Ecology Band, the underground green cult group that dominated the green indie rock funk music scene in the 80s and continues performing to this day. (Wash Post, 3/29/10)
