Friday, December 27 and Sunday. December 29

Crossroads marks end of December birthdays of Tracy Nelson (Dec. 27) and Matt ‘Guitar’ Murphy (Dec. 29).

We’ll hear Nelson with Mother Earth, Maria Muldaur, and Marcia Ball, and Murphy from some of his many sessions with such legends as Chuck Berry, Sonny Boy Williamson, Muddy Waters, and Buddy Guy.

Plus the latest from Vaneese Thomas (the daughter of R&B legend Rufus Thomas), Savoy Brown, Rick Estrin & the Nightcats, Mike Zito, Ronnie Wood, and the Texas Horns, along with classic recordings from Solomon Burke and the Pigrim Travelers.

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.
