I Walked All The Way From Fifth Street To Watts: Out West Blues Pt. 1

I Walked All The Way From Fifth Street To Watts: Out West Blues Pt. 1

#blues

Today's show is the first of a series spotlighting some fine West Coast artists, the bulk form Texas and California, who cut sides for the myriad labels that popped up in the immediate port-war era. In post-war Texas much of the action coalesced in Houston, and all of today's artists have ties to that city. Today we spotlight the barrelhouse pianist Buster Pickens, lap steel guitarist Hop Wilson, singer Luke Miles who came from Louisiana to Houston before starting his recording career in California and one-man-band Juke Boy Bonner who left Houston for California in the mid-fifties.
