Route 66 Blues Express June 26, 2010

As KSMU was off the air due to a big lightning strike last Saturday 6/19/10, we're repeating that show this week for those who 1) don't live in West Plains, where it aired as intended, or 2) heard it on our Webstream! In a show originally broadcast June 28, 2008, John Darkhorse explores Delta blues in the "vintage" segment with cuts by Robert Johnson, Charlie Patton and others; celebrates MSU alum John Goodman's birthday with a track from the "Blues Brothers 2000" soundtrack; and fills the second hour with cheating songs from Little Milton, Tripwire, Bobby "Blue" Bland, Guitar Shorty, and Lil' Ed.
