T-Bone Walker died in 1975, but this tribute inside the Cheapo Discs on Lamar may now disappear, too. We popped in on Christmas Eve, the last, or one of the last, days they were going to be open to buy some DVDs to watch over the holidays. Partially obscured by some gear and boxes I noticed this and thought we'd feature the blues man's mural here in case it didn't survive whatever will happen to the building now. The building, at 9th and North Lamar, originally housed the first Whole Foods which survived two floods here from Shoal Creek flooding. I think Cheapos is no more. It will be interesting to see what happens to the property.
