May new blues releases

Friday, May 12 and Sunday, May 14

Crossroads steps aside this week for a special show to celebrate the birthday of Stevie Wonder. “The Emergence of Stevie Wonder” chronicles the early emergence and on-going career of the legendary musician with music from throughout the multiple Grammy-award winning artist’s career, illuminated by commentary from music educators Birgitta Johnson and Alisha Lola Jones, and music critics Ann Powers, Anthony DeCurtis, Holly Gleason, and Mark Kemp.

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.
