An Albert Collins Feature & A Chuck Berry Birthday

Friday, October 18, and Sunday, October 20  

Crossroads continues the October Albert Collins feature with music from the Grammy-winning album he did with Johnny Copeland and Robert Cray, a guest appearance with John Lee Hooker, and from his Live in Japan release.

Crossroads also marks the October 18th birthday of Chuck Berry with some of his classic tracks and music from George Benson’s recent tribute in hour one, and a special about Berry’s life and music in hour two of the show.

Plus the latest from the Jersey Swamp Cats, the Cash Box Kings, and Kenny ‘Beedy Eyes’ Smith.
