Blues and News: Interview with Denise Lasalle

Additionally, Dr. Jimmy Lee Tillman called into the show to talk about an upcoming benefit concert for John Watkins from the Original Chicago Blues All Stars. For more information about the benefit, go here:

FYI, the recording does not have the entire show. The first 10 minutes and last 10 minutes are missing from the show. In the last ten minutes, my good friend, Clarence Stevens from WGVE 88.7 FM called in along with regular listener and the baddest drummer in Chicago, Jonas Ross.
