Juke Joint: August 6, 2017


This week on "The Juke Joint" broadcast Robert Barclay previewed the St. Louis, Michigan Blues Festival with festival director Minard Shattuck and emcee Denny Adams as his guests.



Robert Barclay launched "The Juke Joint" broadcast on WCMU in April 1985. It has been a Sunday night fixture from 8:00-11:00 pm ever since. A devoted listener dubbed him the "Duke of Juke." He includes nearly a century's worth of blues history on his program including traditional and contemporary blues along with boogie woogie, soul music, rhythm & blues, zydeco and gospel music.
