Crossroads New Releases Show

April 7/9

It’s “New Month/New Music” time as Crossroads teams up with Global Village and Strange Currency at the beginning of every month to feature the best in new blues releases.

Among the highlights this time:

The latest from blues favorites Robert Cray, Eric Bibb, Coco Montoya and Billy Flynn

Corky Siegel returns with his Chamber Blues project

A compilation of classics from Aretha Franklin

New releases featuring blues organ for the April Jazz Appreciation Month/B3 Blues feature – including the latest from John Ginty, Greg Hatza, Raphel Wressnig and more.

And for the Spring Fund Drive – new music (really) from Blind Lemon Pledge.

Chris Heim produces and hosts Global Village, a nationally and internationally distributed world music show; the nightly jazz show Night Train, and Crossroads, KMUW’s twice-weekly blues and R&B show. Chris is also a critic and freelance writer whose work has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Utne, Global Rhythm, Dirty Linen, and Option, among others.
