Join us as we aim the spotlight on Harlem's legendary independent record producer, Bobby Robinson. Not only could he lay claim to a prized series of labels — such as Fire, Fury, Enjoy and Red Robin — but could also boast of an equally impressive string of number one hits from such musicians as Wilbert Harrison, King Curtis, Buster Brown, Lee Dorsey, and more. In addition, recordings by such icons as Lightnin' Hopkins, Elmore James and Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup also became high water marks of their later careers. Originally, he got his start in the music business back in 1946, with his now-famous record shop, conveniently located just a few steps away from the hallowed ground of the Apollo Theater for over 60 years. A tribute to late, great Bobby Robinson, on this episode of Blues Unlimited.
