Emergency! R&R on Broadway & in the AB
18 October: Chuck Berry celebrates his 85th birthday, Joe Egan his 62nd while Cynthia Weil is also a year older. Also the husband of Julie London, musician Bobby Troup (and Dr. Joe Early in the television series "Emergency!") was born 93 years ago. Unfortunately, on October 18, 2007 the South African reggae star Lucky Dube was killed.
The next few days we can enjoy desert blues (Oct. 19) or of rockabilly from Memphis, Tennessee (Oct. 25) on the AB stages.
