Says music historian Chris Brown, "On Tuesday, May 22nd, KSCL's Art of the Insane presents a special guest appearance by Eddie Giles. Giles is best remembered for his soul ballad hit, "Losin' Boy," issued on Shreveport's very own Murco Records in 1967. You can expect an overview of Eddie's 50+ years as a musician whose output includes gospel, rhythm and blues, soul, and funk. Please tune in to Art of the Insane on KSCL 91.3 FM, Tues, May 22, from 8 - 9 pm."

Eddie Giles performed on the stage of the Municipal Auditorium last year in a heritage show. He sang well, fluently played a time-worn Fender Jaguar (see above) and wore a jaunty white suit. There was no doubt about the entertainment energy possessed by the Rev Giles.

Listened to the entire Eddie Giles interview and I've got to say that Eddie is a gentleman and a screamer. What a voice. I've heard of Mr. Giles for ages but there was never an occasion to listen to his sweet
recordings. Chris Brown is doing exactly the right thing for Shreveport's heritage. Who's next, Chris?

R, glad you enjoyed it. I did too. Don't know who's next, but I have a couple in mind. I'll keep you posted. -CB
