The Blues with Lee Hay: 3.15.14 show

We're going to begin the show with a set highlighting events which have happened over the years on the date, March 15th.  Lightnin' Hopkins was born on 3/15/12, Ry Cooder's birthdate is 3/15/47.  James Brown's song, "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" received a Grammy on 3/15/66, and finally on 3/15/68, Life Magazine called Jimi Hendrix "the most spectacular guitarist in the world."

The show continues with music from Booker T & the MG's, the North Mississippi Allstars, and ends with a song by local favorites Marcos Sastre and Larry Goshorn from their 1998 Shades of Blue compilation.
