DC Glenn is half of Tag Team, the hip hop act that scored an enormous hit in 1992 with “WHOOMP! There It Is”. He started writing hip hop songs in the early 1990s. While DJ-ing in several clubs in Atlanta, he played Tag Team’s new song “WHOOMP! There It Is” and it got an enormous reaction. The song has an upbeat, positive message and became a dance favorite. WHOOMP subsequently was featured in a number of movies. Recently, the song and Tag Team were featured in a national commercial for GEICO in which the song was renamed “SCOOP! There It Is”. DC talks about the history of this song and hip hop in general, and how the GEICO commercial came to be and launched the song into orbit once again. Robert’s featured song in this episode is “Python” from the album PGS 7 by Robert’s band, Project Grand Slam.

This is a SPECIAL EPISODE of the podcast. America has a serious, chronic problem - gun violence. Mass shootings have overwhelmed our country. In 2020 there were 614 mass shootings resulting in 446 deaths of which nearly 300 were children. As of March 31st of this year there have been another 126 mass shootings leaving 148 people dead. These are staggering numbers. It seems like every week we hear of another shooting in a school or at work.This podcast was created to inspire people to follow their dream. But there are literally thousands of Americans who will never be able to pursue their dream. They are the victims of gun violence and mass shootings. So this Special Episode of the podcast is dedicated to those Dreamers whose lives were needlessly ended by gun violence.The United States leads the world in gun violence and mass shootings. What a disgraceful record. As President Biden said recently, it is a national embarrassment.I wrote the song in this episode, called Tree Of Life, in October 2018. It was my reaction to the mass shooting that took place at the Tree Of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA where 11 people were senselessly slaughtered and another 6 wounded. I was hoping then that my song would be one more voice to our nation’s leaders urging them to finally take action against gun violence. But sadly, nothing has been done.When will gun violence end? When will mass shootings stop? As I said in my song, we must find a better way - today.So please pause to honor the memory of the gun violence victims, from the children of Sandy Hook and Parkland, to the concert goers in Las Vegas, to the Indiana FedEx employees, and all the others. Lives that were needlessly ended prematurely.Please contact your Congressional leaders. It’s their job to act to protect us. Tell them if they don’t act now to end gun violence you will vote them out of office. That’s the only message they seem to understand. Robert’s song in this episode: “Tree Of Life” from the album PGS 7 by Robert’s band, Project Grand Slam. It’s a spare, mournful song with only piano and voice. Piano: Baden Goyo.
