Rufus, Carla, Vaneese And Mavrell Thomas Plus Birthdays
Friday, March 20 and Sunday, March 22
Crossroads continues the March feature of music from the great Memphis Thomas family. We’ll hear a hit from father Rufus Thomas, a Little Milton album that featured keyboardist and arranger Marvell Thomas, and an album in tribute to her father from Vaneese Thomas this time.
Crossroads also marks March 20th birthdays of pianist, singer and songwriter Marcia Ball, saxophonist and Howlin’ Wolf band member Eddie Shaw, roots blues great Jimmie Vaughan, and also gospel legend Sister Rosetta Tharpe (including a special about her in hour two of the show).
We’ll also hear the latest from the James Hunter Sic, Jimmy Johnson and Mike Zito.
