From The Show: Labor Day

Philadelphia bluesman, Robert Young, better known as Washboard Slim, expanded the horizon for all washboard players in his wake. Known for taking the washboard, once an object of labor, now a musical instrument, Slim added frying pans, a hubcap, pot lids a cowbell and an old rubber car horn into the mix. Hear those who knew him well recall the bluesman who passed away in 1990, plus original audio of Slim and his washboard, now enshrined at the Smithsonian.
