Carl Perkins to Big Joe Turner: G. Bruce Boyer and the Historical Playlist of 'Riffs'
Scott Sherk welcomes G. Bruce Boyer, former fashion editor for Town & Country, GQ and Esquire, and author of the recently-published book Riffs: Random Reflections on Jazz, Blues, and Early Rock.
As he writes, "I may be one of the few people on the planet who remembers [how it felt to hear Carl Perkins for the first time]." The program features selections from Bruce's playlist including the Orioles, Jerry Lee Lewis, Joe Turner, Ray Charles, and others.
