This past week, we lost the great Ben E. King.  Known for his solo career as well as his time in the Drifters, he had 21 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 between 1961 and 1975. To honor him, we’ll play a few of his songs with the Drifters then a few of his HUGE solo hits.

We’ve also got a great new song from Pete Thompson – the man responsible for the TBPC theme song, as well as drummer for Silverhead, Robin Trower, Robert Plant, Pete Haycock and countless others!
