Juke Joint - August 7, 2022

This week on "The Juke Joint" broadcast Robert Barclay previews part of the lineup of the 18th annual Marquette Area Blues Festival which takes place Labor Day weekend in Marquette, MI. This includes music from Carolyn Wonderland, Taildragger with Rockin' Johnny Burgin, The Jimmys, Biscuit Miller, Crossroads Resurrection, Vanessa Collier and Reverend Raven & the Chain-Smokin' Altar Boys.

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.
