CHARLIE PARR!!

Charlie is headlining a blues show for us on Saturday, October 22 at Poor David's Pub.  He seldom gets down to Texas so this is a rare opportunity to see this great artist.  Check out this video of him on youtube:

Don O.'s annual Freddie King tribute show, Fri. Sept 2nd

It's creeping up on that time again for my 26th annual Freddie King birthday tribute show on KNON in Dallas. Every year I dedicate an entire two hour show to the life and music of the "Texas Cannonball" including old favorites, rare tracks, live recordings, interviews, and anything else cool I can find. This year I have acquired several new bootlegs I have never had before and I will be playing a couple of tracks. There may be some surprise LIVE interviews.
