Fresh Air Remembers Blues And Jazz Historian Samuel Charters

As hosts for Time for the Blues, John Porter and I are always listening for interesting stories of the blues! Last Friday (3/19), Fresh Air played an interview from 1987 with Samuel Charters, the blues and jazz historian who helped ignite the blues revival of the 1950s and ‘60s. Charters made field recordings of forgotten and previously undiscovered performers. He also wrote two books. He died Wednesday (3/18/15); he was 85.

Soulful and Funky!

We hope you’ll join us this week (3/21/15) on Time for the Blues as Henry and I are kicking up the funk factor to 11. You know it’s going to be fun; you just don’t have any idea how much fun it’s going to be. You better be ready and have your dancing shoes handy because we’re pulling out all the stops.
