Crossroads pays tribute to Chicago blues man Eddie C. Campbell who passed away last week. We’ll hear music from a number of albums he did under his own name, and a guest spot he did with Lil Ed Williams and Willie Kent.
Crossroads also wraps up a month-long look at the newly named Maple Blues Awards nominees, including music this time from David Vest, JW-Jones, Sugar Brown, Cootes Paradise,and Harpdog Brown.
The show also wraps up the November feature celebrating the centennial birthday of Wild Bill Davis and blues and R&B organ. We’ll hear Davis with Louis Jordan, along with organists Bruce Katz, Booker T., Leon Spencer, and more.
And there are birthday salutes to Robert Nighthawk, Smokin’ Joe Kubek, Mike Morgan, and Brownie McGhee – and selections from new roots and blues releases from Ray Bonneville and Tony Joe White.
