Roll over, Beethoven! When the Beatles recorded the iconoclastic title it wasn't only Beethoven who had to move aside but the composer ofthe song, the rhythm and blues singer, Chuck Berry, as well. When the Rolling Stones were Confessing the Blues they were confessing, too, to the influence of Walter Brown and B.B.King: when the Animals acclaimed the Big Boss Man the real boss man was Jimmy Reed. It was Lightnin' Hopkins who was preserved when The Lovin' Spoonful put the Blues in the Bottle: it was a Mississippi Black, Bukka White, on parole from Parchman Farm, who was Bob Dylan's muse for Fixin' to Die Blues. Using the words and music of a Memphis "gum-ball raker", Gus Cannon, the Rooftop Singers offered the invitation to Walk Right In. Popular music has been walking right in on the blues ever since.
Dear friends I tried financing the costs of Bar
Legend Radio however i cannot afford it no
longer. Pure love for the Blues unfortunately is
not enough. So please Support us with a small
Donate to keep our favourite Radio Broadcasting.
To Our friends and listeners into the United States.
Our Radio is a non profit and commercial free internet station.
Bar Legend Radio, does not cover the royalties owed for digital transmissions of sound recordings into the United States. Digital transmissions that reach listeners in the United States constitute a performance under U.S. law, regardless of where the transmission originated. As such, services that transmit sound recordings into the United States must comply with U.S. copyright laws and as a result they forced me to Geo-block my service’s stream into the United States. Since i can't afford the royalties, Bar Legend Radio will be no longer available for the US listeners. I'm very sorry for this.
