This week on "The Juke Joint" broadcast Robert Barclay celebrated September birthdays of BB King, Barbecue Bob, Roy Brown, Gus Cannon, John "Juke" Logan, Charles Brown, Jazz Gillum and the Singing Brakeman, Jimmie Rodgers. He also played four more tunes by the Rolling Stones in memory of their drummer, Charlie Watts.

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.
