It's been a tough couple of weeks for music lovers with the passing of music legends Leon Russell, Leonard Cohen, and Mose Allison.  On this week's blues show, Saturday, November 19th at 11pm, a musical tribute.

The tribute begins with six songs from Mose Allison's catalog.  During Leon Russell's set, you'll hear him perform with Elton John and Willie Nelson, too.  Of course, Elton John gave Leon Russell a lot of career support the last few years.  And, we'll end the evening with Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah."
