Guests and more
I'm currently speaking with a few potential guests, as many of the great L.A. r&b stars are no longer with us. Had I started my KLON r&b show 20 years later, there would have been no Richard Berry, no Don Julian, no Vernon Green, no Leon Peels, no Harold Baptiste, no Lee Allen, no Eugene Church, no Curtis Mayfield, no Leon Rene, no Bobby Day...almost nobody's left.
Potential guests? Young Jesse, Jewel Akens, Rip Spencer, Tony Allen, Gaynel Hodge, if he can be located, and who else? Zola Taylor? Shirley Gunter? Marvin Phillips? All most unlikely. It's worth considering and wondering about, at the very least.
Suggestions are encouraged, right here.
