We had, on short notice, a quick visit from WRDV legend Rich Reinhart last Saturday. It was wonderful to see.. and hear.. him.. he sounds great and looks fantastic.

A couple of announcements about the show... we will have long time collector and student of the music Carl Tancredi as a guest collector on January 28. He brings a unique blend of rare rhythm and blues to the show. And we tentatively have Paul Ressler, another very deep collector and owner of one of the finest collection of photographs of Rhythm And Blues artists, scheduled for February.

We of course note with sadness the passing of Lou Rawls. This Saturday, in addition to our January features on The Chantels, Otis Williams, and Little Richard, we'll do a tribute to Lou.
