THE FRANTIC ONE! 05 – GET READY

The late great Ernie Durham is here with the first of five special programs taken from the Vintage Radio Vaults, recorded in the 1990s for WDET-FM in Detroit. When I was growing up outside of Flint, Michigan in the 1950s the Ernie Durham show on WBBC-AM radio was at the center of my musical consciousness; I listened every night for several years and gained my appreciation and knowledge of rhythm & blues from the Frantic One. Our fifth and final program in this series has recordings by B.B. King, The Ravens, Hank Crawford, Funkadelic, Brook Benton, Gene Allison, The Impressions, Rare Earth, and Famous Coachman.
