Some of the most famous blues singers were there. Willie:  This is what we always wanted to do and talked about doing, Rosco. Having a union of blues entertainers. Rosco:  Yeah, it should help radio business. Willie:  And we shouldn't have to worry about those old so-called promoters and managers and people in the record business. Rosco:  We ain't the record business, but we can help the musicians get work and get paid performing. Willie:  That's right  bossman.  But Rosco and Willie ran into some problems with the memorial day blues festival. One of their greatest entertainers on the list didn't show up. A big fight broke out indoors and Rosco and Willie got written up for owing money. All kinds of things were happening, but in the end Rosco and Willie managed to keep the music going and they entertaind the crowd themselves. They were able to pull off a successful festival that left everyone feeling happy and satisfied. The experience taught them to always be prepared for the unexpected in the world of event planning.  Soon the festival was over. Rosco: It was all your idea! You almost got us shut down tonight. Willie:  You mean we, Rosco. We!  You see, that's how lies get out. Our number one entertainer didn't show up. Rosco: But we took care of that. Willie: There you go! We!

    19 FEB 2024 · Story by: Gail Nobles Intro by: Gail Nobles Little Milton was expressing pain. He was talking about a flow of tears if his lover ever left him. It's bad to hurt like that over someone. Little Milton’s single Cry Me a River was released in 1972. The style of the song is sold on the Stax label. Little Milton’s records are still being sold because he's that soulful kind of blues we don't hear today.

  • Ed Cook-Aircheck 11:16:23 8.07 PM

    17 NOV 2023 · Ed Cook - WVON, Chicago - January 29, 1966 Downloaded from: Usage: Puplic Domain Cover Art by: Gail Nobles Good evening everyone. Today I'm going to talk about Ed “Nassau Daddy” Cook. Ed Cook was a beloved DJ for WVON-one of Chicago's first major black radio stations. Ed Cook played rhythm and blues. He played Sonny Boy Williamson's Bring It On Home. Sometimes he was a little upset while doing his job because things weren't quite turning out the way he wanted. I can truly understand. Ed: Hold it man! Hold it! Shoot! Messing up already! Ed Cook switched the record to Sonny Boy Williamson because the wrong record was playing. He wasn't in a good mood. Cook had things to say about the weather. (Ed Talking) Yes, I can truly understand Ed Cook. When it turns cold in the winter, things start happening, and it's aggravating. Ed Cook played B.B. King and mentioned that king used to be a DJ, and said that he was smart to quit and become a musician. (Ed Talking) Well, I hope you enjoyed getting to know something about DJ Ed Cook. I certainly did. I enjoyed hearing his conversations in the radio world. If you would like to hear the full broadcast, you can go to I'm Gail Nobles. Goodbye friends. Thank you for listening to Podcast and Blues.

  • B.B. King 1950s 11:16:23 2.16 PM

    16 NOV 2023 · Alan Freed Clip: Usage: Public Domain Story by: Gail Nobles Welcome again to Podcast and Blues. I am your host Gail Nobles. I want to talk about the sound of B.B. King from the 1950s. A much different sounding style of blues than when he was singing The Thrill Is Gone from the 1970s. Alan Freed would play BB King’s music. (Alan Freed Introduces B.B. King's song) B.B. King song Lonely and Blue reminds me of a song that Fats Domino would sing. Lonely and Blue is a song that you would call a blues ballad. There's a whole album and collection of B.B. King singing blues ballads titled B.B.-King Heart and Soul. There's a song on the album that makes me think of the Platters. The Platters, Fats Domino, and B.B. King were singing in the 1950s. They were all in the rock 'n' roll era in the genres of rhythm and blues. I'm Gail Nobles. Thank you for tuning in, and please come back again next time for more Podcast and Blues.
