Hot tamale! Music historian Chris Brown is back at KSCL, 91.3, with a Tuesday night show, 8 to 10 pm
Brown has returned from a stint in Baton Rouge which yielded a Masters in Library Science.
"As with my previous radio show, this will be a mix of rock,
rhythm and blues, and country. A regular dose of old music related to
Shreveport will be thrown in for good measure.
Tonight I’ll include a special James Burton set of songs that I’m
betting didn’t make it into his recent International Guitar Festival
concert, such as: “Swamp Surfer” - Jimmy Dobro; “Just For A While” -
Carol Williams; “Fireball Mail” - Jim and Joe; and “Love Fever” - Gene
Wyatt. Plus, there will be recordings with Dale Hawkins, Bob Luman,
David Houston, and Ricky Nelson."
As a historian specializing in this region, Brown has been terrifically helpful by writing articles, archiving interviews and producing a limited series of non-commercial compilations of local music.
