THE FRANTIC ONE! 02 – SUPER FINE

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 second program in this series has recordings by Bob Hawkins, B.B. King, Ray Charles, Jackie Wilson, Jimmy Scott, Parliament/Funkadelic, Joe Williams, Gladys Knight & the Pips, The Dynamics, and Cal Tjader.
