Bill Doggett died November 13 in New York City at age 80, his achievements practically overlooked by historians in both the jazz and rhythm-and-blues fields. His stuff never got played on oldies radio, and even noncommercial R&B DJs seem to favor Doggett's more touted contemporaries (e.g., Earl Bostic, with whom Doggett recorded on occasion). Still, I can't help but wonder if any radio stations -- here or anywhere -- bothered to dust off a copy of "Honky Tonk" to honor its creator with a spin.
