The photo above is of Buddy Guy’s Blues Tavern in Chicago. We’ve used the photo before. PBS just broadcast a profile of Buddy Guy in their American Masters series. Look out for it.

We’re on a summer schedule but we aren’t taking off a block of time. We’re alternating new shows with repeats. The station will play a repeat of an earlier show. Look up Blues & Rhythm Show #287. for full details of this week’s repeat.

Our eighth show from the home studio. On the program this week, a feature devoted to Rhythm & Blues from Kansas City, both from K.C. itself and from L.A. where many K.C musicians located after a reform movement swept the Pendergast city government machine from power and as the lure of the Coast economy drew them from the city at the same time as opportunities to play were disappearing. Also on the program, Western Swing, and in that segment the story of Johnnie Lee Wills’ “Rag Mop”–as we understand it. Bit of Soul to end the program.

“They’ll tell you to your face, this ain’t no po’ folks home” –Charlie Q. Price
