More Piano Red








Paul Roper called me today talking about Piano Red.   Paul was talking mostly about Red's  song "YOU GOT THE RIGHT STRING BUT THE WRONG YO-YO".
That made me think of his song that he mentions  CALADONIA a lot.  I don't  know if that is the name of it or not.  I got out my Piano Red CD  and I could not find a title that I could related to CALADONIA.  Oh well.
I dug up the Right String, wrong Yo-Yo on YouTube and here it is.

Piano Red was a DJ and piano playing  fun-to-listen-to on WAOK Radio in Atlanta in the 1950s.    As far as the white WASP parents of Metro Atlanta  were concerned, he was public enemy number one.

Piano Red (Willie Perryman) died in 1984 at the age of 73.
