B.B. King Special May 16 at Noon


Musical icon B.B. King passed away on May 14. To honor his memory KLCC is proud to present a re-broadcast of a 2005 radio special hosted by Keb' Mo', celebrating B.B. King's 80th Birthday. 

KLCC will air the special at Noon on Saturday May 16 during Blues Power.

In 2005, B.B. was excited to be celebrating his 80th birthday. He'd just released a new record and completed his first vacation after fifty-seven years on the road. The King of the Blues was vibrant and excited as he looked back at his 80 years on the planet. Along with music featured throughout the program, this special tribute includes insights from Rock icon Carlos Santana, Blues pioneers Koko Taylor, Buddy Guy, and John Mayall as well as Jazz guitarist Pat Metheny.
