1.2.08 OLD BOOTS

I mentioned the Allman's tribute to King Curtis from 1969, and a guy calls to tell me that King Curtis was murdered on a Friday the 13th in 1971. So I guess it was from 1971! I just dig the fact that I have listeners that know this stuff. And Maggie Welsh liked the Allman's stuff enough that she drove to the station just to give me a hug.
