Black Lives Matter was the focus of this evening’s Boudin Barndance radio show as we spent the show focusing on music running the gamut from black artists and performers. Music would be pretty empty without the contributions of black artists. Their contribution to just the American music lexicon is beyond enormous. Buttshaker of the week???? Some tough competition this evening, but we give it to Screamin’ Joe Neal with “Tell Me Pretty Baby.” Now let’s all grab a cold one, or three, and get to the goods….
