Today’s show lasted FOUR hours…and I want to thank Ellen Stanley from Women Folk for letting me cover her show today. So I got the chance to Roll & Tumble from 2pm to 6pm this Tuesday. I took the opportunity to play blues from the root of the music to the fruit of it’s endeavor…..from the “Roots to the Fruits”…I called the show today. From the beginning….through most if it’s derivatives…..all the way to the “saxxy, sexy” blues. See play list below of over 40 tunes:
In 1930, Sinclair Lewis became the first American to win the Nobel Prize in Literature. But in the early 1920s, Lewis, or “Red” as he was called, became a best-selling author with the publication of Main Street—an expose of small town life that celebrated its people while exposing its weaknesses. Lewis published 22 novels during his lifetime, but none matched the success of Main Street. Producer Britt Aamodt investigates the life of Sinclair Lewis, from his upbringing in Sauk Centre, Minnesota, to his death in Rome in 1951 from years of alcohol abuse.
