Charlie who? Another pop icon from yesteryear!

If you have never heard of Charlie Poole, do not fret! But you can find a lot about this wonderful singer and band leader from the 1930s by scouting around in Google. For now, let's just concentrate on one song: The Baltimore Fire, although it is not my favorite.  The top of my Charlie Poole list is Milwaukee Blues although I am not sure if his version is the definitive one. Anyway, we will sing Milwaukee Blues another day!
