New music this week from Al Green and Sonny Landreth. We also heard some Bo Diddley beat—we lost another music hero in him on June 2nd. If you missed the Rockhouse:http://www.kfai.org/node/83 from June 5th, be sure to catch it in the archives. Brother Tad did a great job of honoring Bo Diddley’s talents for us all.
