02/13/12 Omar Kent Dykes Sat On The Couch

Omar Kent Dykes hails from McComb, Miss. , a town with the distinction of being home turf for Bo Didley. Omar started playing guitar at seven, took to hanging out in edge-of-town juke joints at 12 and joined his first band at 13.

He and his band Omar & The Howlers have been spreading their musical word since.

I was honored to have Omar come and sit on The Couch to discuss his career and his newest release Essential Collection - Omar & The Howlers.

Omar told some great stories and discussed his love of making music even after 50 years.
