In 1948, John Dolphin, a black businessman from Detroit, relocated to Los Angeles and made music history when he opened a record store on Vernon near Central Avenue called "Dolphin's of Hollywood." Unable to procure a space in Hollywood due to racism, Dolphin, also known by the nickname "Lovin' John," decided to bring Hollywood to South Los Angeles. What he accomplished before his murder in 1958 was more than just selling records, he became a major influence in the transitional period of rock n' roll and R & B, creating his own labels and introducing a hungry generation to artists like Sam Cooke, Billie Holiday, Little Richard, James Brown, B.B. King and Tina Turner among many others.

All signs should be focused on career and money matters this month. It's a good time to vault ahead or review your current situation. Focus on long term gains rather than immediate benefits, as these could actually cost more down the road. Concentrate by digging in, committing to your task fully without procrastination or avoidance. Be frugal right now. Free events can help cut down wasted entertainment expenses. Pay attention to areas of your life that seem stagnant. Change can be positive during this transitional window. Take advantage!
