Every Friday night, KHUM is your blues station with the best in soul, blues,
R & B and more on The South Side. This Friday the 17th, it's the birthday of the queen of Austin Soul / Twang, Lou Ann Barton.
Her voice drips with Texas and she's one of the finest purveyors of raw, unadulterated roadhouse blues that you'll ever hear.
Along with her solo recordings, we'll hear tunes from throughout her career along with Jimmie Vaughan, Curtis Salgado, Marica Ball, Angela Strehli and more.
Check her out on YouTube.
