It's Eric Holland up early this morning, in for Corny O'Connell. 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.

For Question of the Day, 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 I'll spin a set after 9 a.m.

Songs played:

1 JJ Cale: "Magnolia"
2 CSN (Crosby Stills Nash): "Wooden Ships"
3 SRV (Stevie Ray Vaughan): "Cold Shot"
4 JD McPherson: "Lucky Penny"
