BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 3/1/15
BLUES FROM 1940

This week on Blues Before Sunrise we’ll profile the Year 1940 in terms of Blues records recorded during each month of the year. Among those making records during 1940 were Jazz Gillum, Alberta Hunter, Big Joe Turner, Blind Boy Fuller, Bo Carter, Rhythm Willie and Mead Lux Lewis. That’s a pretty amazing array of Blues singers and styles. Join us as we sort through them month-by-month.
