Don O's annual FREDDIE KING birthday tribute, Friday, Sept 3rd
Friday, September 3rd from 6 pm to 8 pm, U.S. Central time, on KNON 89.3 FM in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, or streaming live worldwide at KNON.org .
Every year since 1985 I have dedicated an entire 2 hour radio show to the life and music of Freddie King. I do this around his birthday each year, and this year, the show falls on his actual birthday, September 3rd. In the past I have been honored to visit with many members of Freddie's band and some of his children during the show. I always try to pull out some obscurities that are seldom heard, a few old favorites, some live recordings, interviews, and other tidbits featuring "The Texas Cannonball". This year I will be featuring some old commercials, including Freddie's spot for Lone Star Beer.
If you have a request for a particular Freddie King tune, get it in now and I'll try to include it in the show.
