: Helena, Arkansas is also a great stop --
: although it's not Mississippi, it IS the
: Delta, and it is a very historic blues town.
: Stop by Cherry St., where you will find
: Morris Gist's music store -- Mr. Gist was
: Sonny Boy Williamson's LANDLORD!, and has
: lots of neat stories.
: Also check out Bubba's record store on the
: corner -- he gives out free bumper stickers.
: But the most important stop is the Delta
: Cultural Center, and KFFA radio, where the
: legendary program King Biscuit Time
: broadcasts from (1360 AM at 12:15 every
: weekday). 'Sunshine' Sonny Payne has been
: the host since 1953, and one of the coolest
: people you will ever meet in this world.
: Sonny is one of our national treasures. He
: knew Muddy, Sonny Boy, and all the post-War
: greats, and he treats everyone the same,
: whether they're blues royalty, or fans who
: walk in the front door, or obscure performers
: like me.
: Man, I wish I was on Cherry St. right now.
: HAVE FUN!
