We may have left 2018 behind, but we will always remember the musical greats we lost last year. John Kessler marked the end of the year with a two-hour special honoring the lives of those artists. (This show originally aired Dec. 29, 2018.)

Among them: Aretha Franklin (1942-2018), Otis Rush (1934-2018), Tony Joe White (1943-2018), Denise LaSalle (1939-2018) and Terry Evans (1937-2018).

Kessler shares obituaries for each artist highlighted, as well as information about how they influenced their craft. Listen to the full show, parts one and two, above.
