Air date: 
Sat, 08/22/2015 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm
Short Description: 
The musical backdrop that spawned the legendary band Blues Hammer
Although they were never as commercially succesful as their counterparts the Beatles and Rolling Stones, Blues Hammer were on the cutting edge of British bands who redefined the Blues. The power trio of Ian Snow, Simon Milk and Nigel White introduced Mississippi delta blues to a new generation of listeners. The influence of classic songs such as "The Cotton Fields of Surrey" and "Sweet Home Berwick-upon-Tweed" can still be heard in your local supermarket today. Please tune in for part one of this tribute as we explore the the artists who influenced their sound. We will hear from LaVerne Baker, Jimmy Reed, Clfiton Chenier and a host of others.

A look back at the career of Sam Cooke.


Sam Cooke was a seminal influence on gospel, soul and rhythm and blues, with an incredible natural singing style. In an era when musicians were regularly exploited Sam established his own record label and publishing company. He was also actively engaged in the civil rights struggle using his status as a celebrity to highlight injustice. Through all of this Sam remained popular with audiences everywhere. Please tune in as we celebrate an American icon.

Sorry it  took so long for me to reply, I'm just learning how this system works. The artists you were referring to were Johnny Taylor, "Its Cheaper to Keep Her," and Jeff Golub was the Guitarist.and his composition is called, "In The Blink Of An Eye"  it was from his latest CD.

Peace, Shaheed
