We’re getting close to the date of B.B. King’s birth. He was born outside of Indianola, Mississippi on September 16, 1925. We’ll hear more than a few from B. tonight on Blues Breakers. Also, right at the beginning of the show we’ll get to a nice long one from Buddy Guy. Buddy is being honored this week by the City Of Chicago who is giving him a Fifth Star award in a ceremony at the Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park this Wednesday. The award will be presented by Shemekia Copeland while live music will be performed by Guy King. It’s free and begins at 7pm. Plus, we’ll have more blues old and new from here and there. Blues Breakers tonight at 9pm on ‘XRT and 93XRT.com.
