RIP Les Paul


Legendary guitarist Les Paul was still performing into his 90s. Here's a bit off the old TV show from 1953 (including commercials!)

Les Paul was maybe the most important figure in twentieth century music. It burns me up that most people only know of him as a brand of guitar.

By the way, your playlist is stunningly good!

Thanks Professor! I love being the DJ.

re: Les Paul, I heard quite a lot of his music growing up. I still have a couple of Les Paul/Mary Ford 45s... they're here somewhere... Caravan is the one I played the most. gawd I'm getting old!
