Jerry Zolten served as an advisor, contributor, and interviewee for the new public radio program, Gospel Roots of Rock and Soul.
Hosted by Grammy award-winning gospel singer CeCe Winans, Gospel Roots of Rock and Soul is produced by Philadelphia public radio station WXPN and distributed by NPR. Through in-depth interviews with artists and dozens of songs, the four-hour documentary illuminates the profound impact that gospel music has made on popular music. It will be broadcast by U.S. radio stations in February, during Black History Month.
