Blues notes

Five 4-by-5 foot signs marking points on the new Arkansas Heritage Delta Music Trail: Sounds from the Soil and Soul went up last Friday, providing photos and information on the radio show King Biscuit Time at Helena, Southern Tenant Farmers Union supporter John Handcox at Tyronza, saxophonist Louis Jordan at Brinkley, drummer and singer Levon Helm at Turkey Scratch and blues songwriter John Weston at Marianna. Four more of the six-foot-tall signs, a project of the Arkansas Delta Byways Regional Tourism Association, will be installed in January to recognize Albert King at West Memphis, Johnny Cash at Dyess, KWEM radio station at West Memphis and KVSA at Dermott. The first sign was installed earlier at the old Plantation Inn in West Memphis, where many blues musicians got their start.
