I’ve been listening to a lot of Willie Nelson lately, and I just learned that he turns 87 years old April 29. My calendar says that it’s also Duke Ellington’s birthday (1899) and Otis Rush’s (1934). I heard on the radio today that it’s Jerry Seinfeld’s birthday too (1954). And then I saw on The Writer’s Almanac that it’s also William Randolph Hearst’s birthday (1863). I didn’t realize The Writer’s Almanac was still a thing. It wasn’t, but now it’s back and you can subscribe to it so that it shows up in your email. (A patron tipped me off to that.)
Listen to some Willie Nelson.
Reverend Gary Davis’s birthday is April 30.
