WESN Show #17 - Mar. 21, 2019

A Second Listen

On this week's show we give a second listen to a selection of songs aired in the first few months of the Downstate Sounds.  Hear a 16-year-old Dan Fogelberg, a man who's music was perhaps too funky and hopefully we will get a little closer to answering the question of who was Bobby Carter.

Bill Kemp from the McLean County Museum of History will join us in studio to talk a little bit about McLean County's own rockabilly pioneer Bonnie Lou as well as share a few of his favorite tracks from earlier shows.
