This week on "The Juke Joint" broadcast Robert Barclay notes the birthdays of Robert Lockwood, Jr, Johnny Clyde Copeland, Rufus Thomas, Carl Martin and William Clarke. He also debuts new CDs by Beth Hart, Sugaray Rayford and a CD celebrating the Nighthawks 50thanniversary.

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.
