Time for the Blues

The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Freddie King and MORE of the Goldwax Story!

With the mid 1960s blues resurgence came many young players and new bands. The Paul Butterfield Blues Band was one--following in the footsteps of the Chicago greats like Muddy Waters, Junior Wells and Buddy Guy, they created their own unique hard-driving sound! Check them out this week on Time for the Blues (8/14/11)!

Pinetop Perkins Tribute & Remembering Page Wilson

This week on Time for the Blues (4/24/11), John Porter and Henry Cook pay tribute to one of the true blues giants, Pinetop Perkins.  Pinetop passed away peacefully at home on March 21, 2011 at the tender age of 97.  We also remember our friend and colleague Page Wilson, a player and supporter of the blues. Page passed away in March as well.
