SHOW 18: SEP 18-24, 2015
BB King, Joe Louis Walker, Jerry Lawson, Big Pete Pearson and Hans Olson are special guests. This program celebrates the week of BB King’s 90th birthday featuring BB King himself from interviews conducted by Drew Verbis before Mr. King’s death. There is not anything that can be said about BB King that hasn’t already been said. He took the blues from the cotton fields to the outhouse, to the Cotton Club to the White House. He’s earned every award that can be achieved including 23 Grammy’s, Honorary Doctorates from Yale and Brown, a Presidential Medal of Freedom and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. There are clubs, restaurants, museums, highway markers, streets and children bearing his name. He is so famous, even his beloved guitar, Lucille, is more famous than the average Hollywood actor. He is the King of Blues, period. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED SHOW!
