MEMORIAL DAY--The Traditional First Day of Summer! Music for a Memorial Day Cook Out along with Birthdays-in-Blue for Gladys Knight, who turns 64 on Wednesday May 28, and one of the GodFathers of Modern Blues: Aaron T-Bone Walker. The Lion's Share of the Show, though, is given over to the Music of Miss Peggy Lee, the 88th Anniversary of whose Birth we celebrate today, this very day. Along with some of our longtime favorites from Peg's vast recorded output we feature a pair of discs reissued without overdubs and added applause--BEAUTY AND THE BEAT with George Shearing and the long lost mastertapes of her closing night in February 1961 at New York's BASIN STREET EAST. What is it about the women of Jamestown, North Dakota?!?
