Crossroads wraps up the month long salute to this year’s Blues Hall of Fame inductees with recordings from Mamie Smith, Jimmy Rogers, and Leroy Carr that will go into the Hall of Fame this year.

Plus March featured artist Jimmie Vaughan from the Family Style album with brother Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Blues Hall of Fame inductee John Mayall from his years with the ABC label and featured in a Southwest Stages special in hour two of the show. And a birthday salute to Aretha, and music from several artists with local and regional concerts in the coming week.
