This week on "The Juke Joint" broadcast Robert Barclay plays some recordings by three guitarists including Roy Buchanan, Danny Gatton and Link Wray. He also notes the passing of blues harp player, Willie Cobbs, and swamp blues drummer, Warren Storm, who recorded with Lazy Lester, Lightnin' Slim and Katie Webster. He'll also spins new recordings by the Ronnie Wood Band and Buffalo Nichols.

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.
