Juke Joint - July 31, 2022

This week on “The Juke Joint” broadcast Robert Barclay spins some new CDs from Shemekia Copeland, Kenny Neal, The Silent Partners, Bernie Pearl, Janiva Magness, The Texas Horns, Big Jack Johnson, the Phantom Blues Band and Harrison Kennedy. He also previews the upcoming Port Sanilac (Michigan) Blues Festival which takes place August 5th and 6th, a free blues festival.

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.
