The 1st of July brought a lot of hot weather to the Twin Cities so I used today’s show to encourage listeners to get out and enjoy that hot fun in the summertime. Music featured the cool champagne blues along with some hot city BBQ blues.
Summertime Comes to the Land of the Round Haircut!!! Sounds of the Season ring out in Hour Three. Before that, we celebrate Birthdays-in-Blue for a pair of African American Divas—Lena Horne and Della Reese. Other Birthdays-in-Blue include The StepFather of Rock ‘n’ Roll—Bill Haley, the ‘Lost Supreme’—the ill fated Florence Ballard, and a pair of New Orleans RB Giants—The Originator of a number of Fats Domono’s hits—Smiley Lewis and tenor sax great Lee Allen.
