Charles Brown, B.B. King and Billy Boy Arnold

Friday, September 16, and Sunday, September 18

Crossroads continues the September feature celebrating the centennial birthday of R&B great Charles Brown. We’ll also mark the birthdays of Chicago blues harp master Billy Boy Arnold and blues legend B.B. King (including a B.B. special in hour two). And there’s new music from Janiva Magness, Diunna Greenleaf, The Texas Horns, and Bob Corritore.

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.
