|It took a few tries but I found Marc Tuton's show playing artists like Blind Lemon Jefferson, Tampa Red, Memphis Minnie,
Curly 'Barefoot' Miller, Black Ace, Willie McTell, Blind Boy Fuller, and my
#1 guitar hero Blind Blake. I called to request favorite tunes and Marc turned me on to the rest of KNON's Blues schedule. I started helping at pledge drives
and getting to know the folks at KNON.
Marc invited me to play live on
his show in June of 1987.
Not long afterwards "Mr. & Mrs. Hippy" had to give up their show and
KNON's program director (Niteman) asked if I would be interested. I
had two interviews and must have done something right because they gave me a
spot. I did my first show on August 10, 1987 and have done a Monday Blues
show ever since.
