BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 9/4/2016

OPEN THE DOOR RICHARD

The Blues Before Sunrise program operates on a three year cycle. Over the years we've developed a series of  specials that show up over the course of our three year cycle. Among these is our Open The Door Richard program. Back in 1947 Dusty Fletcher scored with a giant novelty record called Open The Door Richard. It seems like everybody from Count Basie to Lawrence Welk all did their own versions. We'll play as many versions as I can get my hands on (minus the Welk version, of course). So hold onto your hats as we Open The Door with Richard one more time!!!
