Dr. Lonnie has been a frequent visitor to my Doodlin' Lounge over the last thirty years. This episode, however, is particularly important, I feel, because of the worldwide concern for his health and well-being. Knowing that Lonnie still plays and has the desire to make people happy (which he feels is his sole purpose in this life) is most assuring. Enjoy his conversation and his wisdom along with selected tracks from his discography in this episode of my Doodlin' Lounge
