About the show

Playing tracks by

Cannonball Adderly, Albert Collins, CURTIS KNIGHT, Booker t. & the mg's, James Brown and more.

Well after a much needed hiatus, I'm finally back with a special installment. The Freedom Riders.Where should I begin? For those who don't know, this year marks the 50th anniversary of the event that sparked the civil rights movement . The effort was a collaboration of both Black and White Americans who sought to make a difference in the South. While traveling thru the backwoods of the rural South they were often terrorized, beaten, jailed and even bombed. One could only imagine the thoughts and emotions of a person put into such stressful circumstances. This mix takes a different tone, it's pretty tense yet solemn as I tried to capture the emotions of the brave souls who endured those trying times during the early 60's.

Seriously. That Bobby Bland track just gets better every time I hear it! I must own this record. May have to succumb to evilbay for this.
