a special Memorial day tribute to WWII veteran Jimmy "The Midnite Cowboy" Pryor.  This show was unmarked, but listening to the show was probably Memorial day weekend of 1999.  It starred Jimmy Pryor with the Bad Boys of the blues (Tom Gary, Scott Long, Jim Farr, and John Wood)  This was the original Sunday Night Blues Showcase at the Hull Ave. 

Tonight we hear Jimmy play his shuffle, and slow blues standards!  Then Clarence Key Jr. joins the fun followed by Woody.  

The crowd was very lively that night and its fun to listen to them banter with the band and Jimmy!
