Blues Holiday Specials

Friday, December 20 and Sunday, December 22

We’ve got holiday specials this time at the Crossroads – starting with a Beale Street Caravan Holiday show featuring the Maître D’ band doing songs from  Booker T. & The MGs’ classic holiday album, In The Christmas Spirit, performed live in the same studio where the original album was recorded. Then in hour two, it’s a House of Blues “Blues Christmas” special with classic blues holiday tunes and classic holiday tunes done blues style.

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.
