Earth Wind and Fire highlighted a week of famous classic names visiting D.C. (Kyle Gustafson/For The Washington Post)

It was a good week for fans of classic funk, R&B and soul. The Obamas hosted Smokey Robinson and Stevie Wonder (as well as John Legend, Sheryl Crow, Nick Jonas and more) as part of "The Motown Sound: In Performance at the White House." Legend said "thanks, but no thanks" to his recent tax cut. We talked to classic funk crew Earth Wind and Fire about spending 40 years together, then reviewed their show at the Kennedy Center. Radiohead's new album sounded better with more listens. Katy Goodman of Vivian Girls and La Sera talked about setting sail on the Bruise Cruise. And Queen of Rockabilly Wanda Jackson is still awesome.
