Three Kings & A Queen Finale
Crossroads wraps up the September Three Kings & A Queen feature with a special emphasis on Ben E. King and “Queen of the Blues” Koko Taylor who share September 28 for a birth date. We’ll hear Ben E. with the Drifters and as a solo artist; and Koko from her early Chess days, later music on Alligator, and in a concert special in hour two of the show.
Plus a bit more from the other two Kings born in September – B.B. King and Freddie King – some music from swamp blues pioneer Lazy Lester who passed away last month, new releases from Shemekia Copeland and Mud Morganfield, and a festival preview.
