    I feel good!

    The Associated Press reports that late soul singer James Brown has been posthumously inducted into the Georgia Radio Hall of Fame. Brown's daughter Deanna Brown Thomas accepted the honor in his stead at the awards ceremony on Saturday in Atlanta.

    Brown actually purchased WRDW-AM in Augusta, Georgia, in the late 1960s. He also operated or owned radio stations in Atlanta, Baltimore and Knoxville, Tennessee, so he certainly has a history with radio beyond being played on it!

    The Georgia Hall of Fame was established in 2007.
