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.

Time for the Christmas Blues!

We hope you’ll stay up late with us this Saturday (12/20/14) at 11:00 p.m. for Time for the Blues, because we’ve got the kind of blues that will get you through the stressful times and maybe put a smile on your face and make you want to wiggle on the dance floor! (If you don’t have a dance floor, then wiggle in the kitchen a little bit...)  And if you miss us this week, then be sure to catch us again on Christmas Night at 9:00 – more on that later!
