Radio KBwD is on the air (Special Edition)

We're rolling with a little mini-tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan as this weekend marks the 20th anniversary of his death.

A little background to what you are about to watch and listen: This is from the 1985 Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland where Stevie and the boys returned as conquering heroes after being given the cold shoulder by the attending jazz purists during their initial appearance in 1982 (being championed by the likes of David Bowie and Mick Jagger in the intervening 3 years does wonders for one's street cred).

Anyway, from 1985 and down by the shores of Lake Geneva, Switzerland, it's Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble performing, "Scuttle Buttin'" and "Say What?"
