WYEP's Tribute to Leon Russell

 
00:00

Leon Russell, the writer of songs like "A Song For you" and "Delta Lady," died on November 13, 2016, at age 74. Although the gravelly-voiced singer and songwriter was known primarily as a recording artist, but he was a top-notch keyboardist and session musician who played on a dizzying array of familiar songs over the years. WYEP paid tribute to Russell's musical legacy in this hour of music on which he wrote, created, or performed.

Hosted by Mike Sauter. Originally aired: November 14, 2016.
