Don's Tunes

Ray Charles studied composition (writing music in Braille) and learned to play the alto saxophone, clarinet, trumpet, and organ while attending the St. Augustine School for the Deaf and the Blind from 1937 to 1945.
One morning I woke up and I was just laying there in the bed with thoughts running through my mind, when all of a sudden it hit me. I began to realize that people would come up to me and say, “Hey, kid, hey, kid, you sound just like Nat Cole!” Or “Hey, kid, you sound like Charles Brown!” It was always “Hey, kid.” And I began to tell myself, “You know one thing? Don’t nobody really know your name. They don’t know who the hell you are. You’re just a ‘Hey, kid.’” And then my thoughts went back to my mom. She used to always tell me, “Boy, be yourself. I don’t care what you are, but be yourself. Don’t try to be something you’re not.” So I started telling myself that. Although I was scared to do it because I could get work sounding like Nat Cole. I said, “Oh man, I don’t know what I’m gonna do. Suppose I fail?” But I thought, I can’t keep going around imitating. I have to sound like myself, good, bad or indifferent. If I make it, I make it. If I don’t, I don’t.

November 29, 2020 WRFG Route 66 with Philo Records Retrospective

#WRFG This morning, Sunday, March 7, we're doing a quick survey of the early years of Aladdin Records. Aladdin was an independent west coast label that released a ton of good stuff in the '40s and '50s. The two brothers who started the label in 1945 originally called their label Philo Records, but had to change it for legal reasons.

We did a survey of Philo Records last fall. In case you're interested, here's the podcast for that show.

Beyond sad, heartbroken, to learn of Gene Taylor’s passing at his home here in Austin due to hypothermia. His power had been off for five days. Gene played with, among others, The Blasters and Fabulous Thunderbirds. As the tragedy here in Texas fades from the news, please keep us in your thoughts. It’s going to be a very long recovery. Thank you. - Mike Thompson
