“Soul Train” began national syndication in 1971 and would continue for another 35 years. (It holds the record as the longest-running nationally syndicated TV show.) Many artists got their big break there, including the O’Jays and Destiny’s Child.- Excerpt from New York Times article, “When the Music Stopped for Don Cornelius”- by Jennifer Medina, March 9, 2012
