As we approach the dog days of summer, it’s time to get a few more things done here before slowly fading away in the heat waves on the horizon. Something that I have been working on for many years is finally realized. BDI made the final payment yesterday on a beautiful bronze headstone for Ernie Johnson, half of the great Eddie & Ernie soul duo. Ben Dover Inc. will host a headstone unveiling later this summer, and I will keep you posted here when a date is confirmed. We will also premier a wonderful 22 minute interview that I had with Ernie at The Elks Club shortly before his untimely passing in 2005. It includes his memories of growing up in Phoenix, singing with his fathers gospel group, meeting Eddie and performing at the world famous Apollo Theater in NYC. So happy to check this one off my “to do” list after all this time. RIP Ernie.
