Oh we’ve got something you’ll like today. It’s a rollicking hour with the man who was B.B. King’s drummer for over thirty years….Tony (TC) Coleman.

He’s also played with Bobby Blue Bland, Johnnie Taylor; is friends with Willie Nelson and many other of our greatest artists.

He’s a singular individual and is always great to hang with.

As I hope you know, I always ask our guests what they think “On the One” means. I had just brought it up, before we were rolling and TC jumped right in. I reached over to punch up the recorder……….

Next time, to mark what would have been the ninety-second birthday of Fats Domino. We’ll talk with Reggie Houston who was his baritone sax player for twenty years.

Our theme music is Action Jackson by Tyrone Hendrix who is kind enough to let us use it. It’s from his latest album, “Rhythm On Life, Volume 2” He was named Soul Tracks Magazine’s New Artist of the year for 2019.
