RIP - BOBBY BLUE BLAND PASSES AWAY AT 83 Bobby (Blue) Bland, the debonair balladeer whose sophisticated, emotionally fraught performances helped modernize the blues, died on Sunday June 24th at his home in Germantown, Tenn., a suburb of Memphis. He was 83. His death was confirmed by his son, Rodd, who played drums in his band. Though he possessed gifts on a par with his most accomplished peers, Mr. Bland never achieved the popular acclaim enjoyed by contemporaries like Ray Charles and B. B. King. But he was nevertheless a mainstay on the rhythm-and-blues charts and club circuit for decades.
His vocals, punctuated by the occasional squalling shout, were restrained, exhibiting a crooner's delicacy of phrasing and a kind of intimate pleading. He
influenced everyone from the soul singers Otis Redding and Wilson
Pickett to rock groups like the Allman Brothers and The Band.
Rock-it Radio DJ - Al 'Cool Daddy' Smith will be doing a special tribute show to him in the upcoming weeks, here at Rock-it Radio of this Blues great and we invite all of our listeners to tune in when it comes out.
PROGRAM MANAGER SUGGESTS SLEEPER MOVIE - 20 FEET FROM STARDOM.
Earlier this week - Program Manager Lane Quigley wrote to the Rock-it Radio DJ's suggesting a movie and thought I would pass it along to our listeners. As it does sound interesting. Lane writes the following:
"I am not much of a movie-goer ... in a good year, I'll see one movie. But last week I saw a flick that I would highly recommend to music lovers. It's a documentary entitled "20 Feet From Stardom" and it focuses on the background singers that have spent their careers mostly out of the limelight. It was interesting, fast-paced and well produced. I'm guessing that it is in limited release, so it may only be showing for short spurts in larger cities (it opened in LA & NY and is now in a few major cities)."

============================================ Rock-it Radio Program Webpage Reminder
Remember, if the show
that you want to hear is getting close to the bottom of the list of
radio shows, you should tune in as soon as you can. These shows to have a
high audio quality require a lot of internet bandwidth and memory. And
currently we can only afford the 25 latest shows online here at Rock-it
Radio. So, when a new show is put online it knocks the oldest one off
the Rock-it Radio archives page. Usually a show will at least last 16
to 20 days, once it is placed in the archives.
