Freddie King documentary needs your input

Last night I had Tom Keener and Michael Maher from the Allen Public Library on my KNON Texas Blues Radio program.  They are currently working on the first ever documentary on Texas blues legend FREDDIE KING and they need your input.  They're looking for original photos, posters, and stories from North Texas folks who knew, played with, or attended live concerts by Freddie King.  They're especially looking for folks who were at the 1969 Texas International Pop Festival in Lewisville.  The family of Freddie King and the Freddie King estate are participating in the project.
