The Funk Excursion w/ Badd Kitti celebrates its 2nd Anniversary this month with some of my favorite Jams, Series and Re-Broadcasts.
This Week – The Re-Broadcast of FUNKtoberfest/Tribute to ‘Boogie’ and ‘Razor Sharp’, featuring LIVE performances and interviews with Kount Funkula & Tony Strat of the
P-Funk Outlawz, AND a brief retrospective of the musical contributions of Cordell “Boogie” Mosson and Joel “Razor Sharp” Johnson. (originally aired on 10/13/18)
Keep it locked this month for the 2nd Anniversary Specials. and Don’t Miss the 100th Broadcast Funkstravaganza!
For this episode, I beamed over to Dunellen, NJ to jam with Donna Snead (widow of “Boogie” Mosson) and the B’Nevolent Funk/Afterglow Crew, sponsors of FUNKTOBERFEST 2018!
Fest headliners, The P-Funk Outlawz, SHOWED OUT as did special guests Jen Durkin & The Business, and super-funky bassist, TYGAH.
I caught up with PFO after the show – Listen to interview excerpts, plus ALL the festival highlights on Part 1.

NEXT, check out FUNKTOBERFEST 2018 Part 2 – Tribute to “Boogie” & “Razor Sharp”.
The musical contributions of bassist Cordell “Boogie” Mosson, and keyboardist/synthesist Joel “Razor Sharp” Johnson are often confused with their counter parts Bootsy Collins and Bernie Worrell.
Although Collins and Worrell are rightly considered co-architects of the P-Funk sound, this brief retrospective proves that Mosson and Johnson have earned their place in P-Funk history as well.
For this tribute, I’m focusing on music composed by Mosson and Johnson, which demonstrates the full spectrum of their contributions to The Funk.
I originally planned to celebrate Mosson alone, as FUNKtoberfest and B’Nevolent Funk were born out of his passion to keep the Funk alive. Sadly, “Razor Sharp” Johnson passed away suddenly, just a few days prior to the airing of the show, and it seemed fitting and timely to include his tribute here as well. I hope I did these guys justice. If anything was overlooked, charge it to my head and not my heart.
