Juke Joint - August 21, 2022

This week on “The Juke Joint” broadcast Robert Barclay spins the latest releases from Shemekia Copeland, Walter Trout, Delbert McClinton, GA-20, Harrison Kennedy and John Nemeth. He also notes the passing of Detroit songwriter, Lamont Dozier, with some tunes he co-wrote for the Motown label including music by Martha & the Vandellas, Marvin Gaye, the Supremes and the Four Tops.

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.
