Freddie King made it on our recent top 100 Texas songs list a couple times, a testament to just how important and influential the Dallas-born blues guitarist still is some 30 years after his death. This live clip of King in Dallas, 1973, is a high water mark.

This Friday, August 31, KNON's Don O. is hosting his annual Freddie King birthday show from 6 to 8p.m., during which he'll play "some rare alternate takes, acoustic, live recordings, and a few tracks where Freddie accompanies other artists." Will there be special guests? Guess you'll have to tune in.

Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
