Daily Almanac - July 20

Chicago Blues harmonica player Big Golden Wheeler died on this day in 1998.
Wheeler began playing the harmonica while growing up in Georgia, but became
great when he moved to Chicago in the late 1950's.  A part the local Blues
scene for decades, his recording career didn't really begin until just a few
years before he died.
For more about the life, carrer and recordings of Golden Wheeler, please

Birthday greetings go out to chromatic harmonica master "G", who was born on
this day in 1971.  Happy Birthday G!!!
