THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF MARCH 7-8, 2015

Congrats to Blues Foundation in Memphis Tennessee.  They have moved into their brand new facility.  They moved last week, but the official Grand opening is May 8th.  They will have Hall of Fame Exhibits, their offices of course, and everything Blues.  On April 9th, this is very good, they plan to unveil a statue of Little Milton. If you want to know what the statue will look like, take a look at his album cover, Think of Me… That’s the last album Little Milton recorded….

The Blues Brothers are on Tour… Yes, that duo from the movie The Blues Brothers will be at a venue near you soon.  The Blues Brother started as a skit on Saturday Night Live, turned into a movie, a radio show, and on tour again after some 20 plus years… So, watch out for them….

And On a Sad Note, Cephas Bowles, the long time General Manager of WBGO Public Radio in Newark NJ passed a couple of weeks ago.  Cephas built WBGO Radio to the Music Power house it is today in the New Jersey and New York area.  Not just Jazz, but all forms of music. Our condolences go to Cephas’s family…

THE BLUES NEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF FEBRUARY 28-MARCH 1, 2015

We’ve been trying to find out How Mr. B.B. King is doing, and we’re happy to have his daughter, Ms Claudette King on the phone….Ms King, thanks for joining us here on BluesTime In The City….Everybody want to know how B.B. is Doing…..

(Claudett On BB)

The Man has done two or three as many concerts as anyone….Does he ever get tired:::
(Claudette’s Response)

Let’s talk about you…You have some great songs out….Is it unfair to you when you walk on stage for the expectation level to be so high, because you are B.B.’s Daughter…..How do you get around that, or do you get around that..What do you do???….
(Claudette’s Response)(Produce)

But the mindset…Is that an issue for you???
(I look at)

Well, I’ve seen you perform, and you do deliver…..Ms Claudette King, thank you so much, and this is Claudette King a super performer in her own right, and not B.B. daughter performing for B.B.
(That’s Right)

Thank you very much for joining us here on BTIC…
