Why is there no wall mural for Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff? If there is one I've missed it.

Meanwhile there is one, prominently on Broad St., for a bunch of singers, who grew up in S. Phila., who, except a couple of them, abandoned the Philadelphia area decades ago.

There's also one for Joan Jett who really has no Phila. identity except she was born in Lankanau Hospital. Meh.

There is one for Patti LaBelle. Yeh!

But why is there nothing for a monster hit producing song writing team who wrote 3000 songs most of which we have not heard? Maybe if KG had left his hometown more people would care. Sigh.

Discuss.
