The penciled message on his hat, too, suggested some of the delight with life that has given to his blues their warmth and vitality: KID FURRY - Have Gun Will Travel - Sam Charters in the booklet accompanying the 1960 Folkways LP

Riley Puckett photo

Hi all,

This was posted on facebook, on the "Early History of WNOX Radio" page by David Pounds, the grandson of Riley Puckett, with the following statement:

"Restored photo of my grandfather, George "Riley" Puckett, playing WNOX circa 1930's. Riley was a popular blind guitarist/singer from 1924 until his death in 1946. He recorded over 300 songs on 78 RPM format for Columbia and Decca/Bluebird."

I thought you might enjoy the photo, and since it was a public post, I'll share it.

Cheers, and season's greetings to all!

Pan
