This edition of "MIDWEST BEAT with Tom Lounges" originally aired on FRIDAY, AUGUST 21st on 89.1 FM-Lakeshore Public Radio
Musical Guest: JOHNNY IGUANA
"MIDWEST BEAT with Tom Lounges" featured two great musical guests on this date. First up from 1-2pm was Chicago music maker JOHNNY IGUANA of The Claudettes fame. Iguana spoke of his debut piano blues album being release that very weekend.
Selections from the album were spotlighted as Johnny spokes with Lounges about the making of the new album, its many celebrity guests, and why the time for a solo release is now. What wil the future of The Claudettes be moving forward? Listen as that very question gets asked.
God Bless Charlie Daniels! Thank you Charlie for the many interviews, the opportunity to emcee some of your local shows, and your many kindnesses over the decades. You leave behind a legacy of great music, good works and great memories for so many. You touched and impacted many, many lives.
"Midwest BEAT with Tom Lounges" welcomed Chicagoland R&B vocalist/band leader Robby Celestin (Final Say, TimePeace, etc.) into the studio while practicing social distancing, to talk about his quarter century career, his various recording projects and musical groups over the years, and the brand new acoustic-based project he is debuting for the first time just days after this show aired.
