Biography

Television director J. D. Lobue made a name for himself directing the sitcom "Soap," the pioneering primetime satire that was boycotted by the Moral Majority before it even debuted. But it's less well known that Lobue was on the cutting edge of music television history as well. His first break came as a director on an American institution that aficionados still wax poetic about: "Soul Train," the music and dance program that defined R&B during the 1970s.
