BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 5/24/15
 B.B. KING TRIBUTE

I remember when I was a kid that they would always advertise everything by saying “Be the first kid on your block, etc etc etc…” It’s ironic that so many years later I often find myself “the last kid on my block.” My B.B. King Tribute on BBS is a good example. In order to make my program available for stations for the weekend I usually have to have it ready by Wednesday or Thursday at the latest. Unfortunately the news of B.B.’s passing came on Friday, too late for me to jump on the bandwagon. But a B.B. Tribute – no matter what you play – just offers too many great records to pass up. So Hours #1 & #2 this week will feature my tribute. No surprises – no rare records just straight out B.B. Classics. My favorite B.B. era was the mid 1960s when he had the organ in his band. You’ll be saying “My-my – How unexpected – A B.B. King Tribute – Who would have guessed?” Join us – won’t you? Great records by a great artist and a great ambassador for the Blues.

B.B. King Tribute – Only on BBS.
