Billy Block has been a champion for songwriters for a long time. The founder of Western Beat, along with Wendy Waldman and Brad Parker, he impacted the lives of songwriters here in L.A. before moving to Nashville, where it became an institution. A longtime radio host, event emcee, session drummer and tireless advocate for songwriters and struggling musicians, he announced that he has cancer. Now his friends in Los Angeles, led by Brad Parker, are uniting to champion Billy, with a concert to raise money for the Billy Block Family Fund this Thursday night, April 10 at the Musician’s Institute at 7pm, with listed performers and many more special guests.
