When I was interviewing B. B. King for the recent biography ("Treasures") 
that I did with him, I asked him if he listened to radio at home or on the bus.

He proudly told me that he is "The Mayor of Bluesville" and he was intense 
about taking that honor seriously. He listens to Bluesville whenever he can and 
said that he is constantly learning new things.

I told Bill about the interview and I think that he did a little fun with B. 
B. the next time that he came through town.
