Beginning this Saturday night, June 16th at 11pm, on The Blues, we're going to repeat some of the many specials I've produced over the years since 2007 about King Records and the talented musicians who recorded there.  This King Records special begins with a 2010 phone conversation I had with Bill Beach who was born in Glencoe Kentucky in 1932.  

You can learn about Cincinnati's most famous record label with dozens of events and special shows on this six-page list for King Records Month 2016.

Updated 4/28/16: WVXU-FM will repeat a Lonnie Mack 70th birthday blues special at 11 p.m. Saturday as a tribute to the legendary guitarist who died April 21 near his Nashville home.

The one-hour special, produced by Lee Hay, was originally broadcast July 16, 2011.  Here's her description of the 2011 program:

Not only did David Letterman love Cincinnati’s “Paul Dixon Show,” he was a huge fan of Dixon’s sidekicks Colleen Sharp Murray and Bonnie Lou.

And I have the proof.

Going through my Letterman files recently, I found a note Dave sent me in 1998 referencing Bonnie Lou, the vocalist from WLWT-TV’s “Dixon” and “Midwestern Hayride” who died earlier this month at age 91. Lee Hay will air a one-hour tribute to Bonnie Lou at 11 p.m. Saturday in place of the weekly “Blues” show.
