As Seen on TV: Starsky and Hutch

No, it’s not David Soul here!

Antonio Fargas was the jive talking informant who added color to the muscle car commercial that was this cop show. His 1980 single “It’s Christmas” is just as Jamaican flamboyant as a closeted drag queen can be. (His parents were Puerto Rican and Trinidadian.)

But “Christmas Eve 1953” is free form word jazz with a dollop of disco. Worth a listen.
