Great balls of fire (* update)

LewisThere'll be a whole lotta shakin' going on Thursday morning when Jerry Lee Lewis drops in on the KCRW studios. I'm told he will be the guest of Nic Harcourt on Morning Becomes Eclectic and play a little music. * Change of plans: The powers that be at KCRW now say he's recording with Harcourt tomorrow but the set will air at a later, as -yet-undetermined date. Here's some info on the new album he's pushing. It's got a little help from friends like B. B. King, Bruce Springsteen, Mick Jagger, Neil Young, Eric Clapton and Ringo Starr — 22 artists in all.
