On this installment of the Barber Shop Show, host Richard Steele was joined by soul and blues legend Otis Clay. He talked about his part in the new Memphis Soul documentary “Take Me to the River”, as well as his career. We also heard from Diana Simon, who’s currently touring with Otis as a backup singer. She’s has some deep connections to the Chicago music scene, too.
Plus, Richard takes the pulse of poverty in America with Deborah L. Shelton of the Chicago Reporter. They discuss new numbers from a recent analysis by Pew Research.
