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.

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!

Son Seals and More Hart & Bonamassa!

Make sure you join us this week (12/6/14) on Time for fhe Blues as Henry Cook and I heat up the late night with some very cool blues. We’ve got all sorts of temptations and it’s the perfect time to indulge. After all, no one’s watching!

It was ten years ago this month that the world lost one of its best bluesmen, the legendary Son Seals. Seals was the epitome of cool and would often show up unannounced at clubs. You could feel the whispers that maybe tonight the man with the black body guitar would be here to set the club on fire.

Hot Leftovers 2014!

It might take you a couple of days to recover from eating too much turkey on Thanksgiving and maybe shopping too much on Black Friday and Shop Local Saturday, but you should be recovered enough to tune into Time for the Blues this Saturday (11/29/14). If we don’t get you moving, you might want to check your pulse.
