Junior Wells and Big Mama Thornton

Friday, December 9 and Sunday, December 11

Crossroads pays tribute to Christine McVie with some of the blues-inspired music she did with Chicken Shack and from her early days with Fleetwood Mac.

We mark birthdays of Junior Wells, Joan Armatrading, and Big Mama Thornton (featured in a special in hour two of the show).

We'll also hear the latest from Hurricane Ruth, the HOROJO Trio, and Rick Berthod (with a tribute to Peter Green era Fleetwood Mac).

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.
