Hank Ballard & The Midnighters

Celebrating King Records Month: Hank Ballard & The Midnighters

In honor of Cincinnnati's celebration of King Records in September, I produced a special about Hank Ballard & the Midnighters which will air on Saturday, September 9th at 11pm and again Sunday, September 10th at 7pm.  Music historian Brian Powers spoke by telephone recently with the two remaining Midnighters, Billy Davis and Norman Thrasher.  They've both been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as the Midnighters.
