Women In Blues + Rufus Thomas

Friday, March 26 and Sunday, March 28

Crossroads wraps up the March Women in Blues feature with selections from Koko Taylor, Candye Kane, Diunna Greenleaf, and more.

We also mark the birthday of Memphis R&B legend Rufus Thomas, with hits and rarities from across his career in hour one and a special with his daughter Carla Thomas in hour two of the show.

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.
