Music Minute: Kokomo Arnold, 'Georgia Bluesman'

Feb 15, 2017

We go to Lovejoy, Georgia today to celebrate the birthday of Kokomo Arnold, who was born on this date in 1901. Born James Arnold, Kokomo regarded his career as a recording artist secondary to his work as a bootlegger. 

 

As we celebrate the contributions of African Americans this month, we salute a Georgia native son on his birthday: Kokomo Arnold of Lovejoy.
