9/15/2008 Bop Street

 

Birthdays-in-Blues for the King of the Blues himself--B.B. KING and a pair of Chicago Blues Harmonica Legends--BILLY BOY ARNOLD and SNOOKY PRYOR. Nashville Style Birthdays for the Once and Future King of Country Music ROY ACUFF and HANK WILLIAMS with any number of Pop and RB Artists taking a turn with Hank's tunes; also a number of original versions of songs we usually think of as being written by Hank but actually penned by others. Additional Birthdays include jazz immortal CANNONBALL ADDERLEY, the ever debonair BOBBY SHORT, and a pair of Tenor Saxophone Titans--SIL AUSTIN and Lousi Prima's longtime partner in musical mayhem SAM BUTERA.
