7:00 p.m. Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at the Mann Music Center, Philadelphia, PA, June 30, 1987
We close out our musical programming tonight with a live outing from Stevie Ray Vaughan, one of the greatest blues guitarists in musical history. Even B. B. King and Lucille agree with that assessment, I might add.
Before, in between, and after we have that great wide Open Stream courtesy of The Music Mermaid. As you well know, she has impeccable taste in music. We’re totally free, 24-7, no strings and absolutely no surprises. And we never ask for your personal information. This is a labor of love inspired by my many summer days sitting around in Medford, Massachusetts with my friends listening to WMEX-AM on my transistor radio. Tune us in.
