Riley B. King was born on this date in 1925. While performing on WDIA radio in Memphis, he was known as Beale Street Blues Boy. That was soon shortened to Blues Boy King and eventually B.B. King. What other artists are known by their initials? That could be for a first, middle or last name. Groups that use initials aren't what we're looking for, just individuals. List them below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

k.d. lang "Constant Craving"

G. Love and Special Sauce "Honor and Harmony"

PJ Harvey "A Place Called Home"

R.L. Burnside "It's Bad You Know"
