They're Burying Dallas Radio Great Cuzzin' Linnie Saturday and Singing His Praises Sunday
But Henderson died "I wouldn't say broke," as Harris puts it, "but well under-funded." Which is why Harris and others are "trying to raise enough to cover expenses for the funeral." he explains. Hence Sunday's event at Poor David's Pub, which begins at 5 p.m.: "a celebration of the life and legacy of Cuzzin' Linnie." Admission will be free, but donations will be accepted.
Says Harris, "From what I understand, we have a lot of artists planning on attending," among them some local R&B icons who have suggested they will put in an appearance. "Golden Gate's working with us," Harris says, "and whatever we wind up raising Sunday we'll hand over to Golden Gate to handle expenses."
