Title

King Porter

Description

"Box 2, Folder 32: This beautiful Morrow pix is of King Porter, who broadcasted at WJLD on Red Mountain. A piano player, he played on the air and in clubs and had an air shift as well. Here, through the miracle of magnification and knowledge, I determined this was a 78 of T-Bone Walker on the Imperial label, "Welcome Blues." The discog of the Imperial label listed the flip as "You Don't Understand" and the date of issue, August 15, 1951."
