R.L. Griffin promotes other artists on his radio show and at his club. Visiting musicians, white or black, climb onstage to sit in and play. As a result, the club owner and his Blues Palace inspire deep loyalty. Members of Griffin’s house band have been with him for 20 years. Texas blues singer-musician Edwin Holt even wrote a song about the man who’s known as “The Right Reverend of the Blues.”
