Ronald Bluster, better know as Bobby Little, has followed a path unfamiliar to the majority of blues performers. Instead of leaving his rural roots behind for the big city, like so many artists, Little did just the opposite. He began his musical career in the Bay Area of California, singing doo wop, then migrated to Chicago's vibrant West Side where his musical direction took shape, and eventually settled in the cradle of the Delta- Clarksdale, Mississippi- where he has begun performing once again.

In between his travels, Little developed his drumming craft under the guidance of Fred Below and Odie Payne and set the beat for bluesmen Earl Hooker, Jimmy Johnson, A.C. Reed, and a host of others. He also adopted a new name at the suggestion of Magic Sam.

Besides mastering the drums, Little also learned another facet of the music business during his years on the road. He began dabbling in radio broadcasting in the late '60s in Mississippi after his fellow bandmates decided to disband and head back North. When the F.C.C passed laws requiring radio stations to hire black employees, Little seized the chance to learn more about the industry. It wasn't long before he became a well-known pesonality on several stations throughout the South. More importantly, Little learned the art of promotion while in radio.

Today, Bobby Little combines all these talents to carry on the musical tradition that he loves. He is currently drumming in a blues band, the Clarksdale All-Stars, and is in charge of promotions for Stackhouse Records and the Rooster Blues label in Clarksdale. He still finds time to spin records three nights a week at local clubs and even books and promotes local talent throughout the South. Although he is no longer in the same limelight as his days on the West Side, Little has carved a new niche for himself in the Delta.
