BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 6/24/18
Chess Book Interview Redeux
 

The BBS soundboard is still out for rehaul and so we revisit a program originally broadcast on June 11th 2000…
This week on Blues Before Sunrise we'll talk to Nadine Cohodas. Nadine is the author of the new book called SPINNING BLUES INTO GOLD. It's the story of the Chess Brothers, Leonard and Phil, and their story - coming to America as Jewish immigrants working at various businesses in Chicago's Black community before stumbling into the music world - first with a nightclub and then with their famed record company and their radio stations. This book is very well done, its fascinating, and its a vital cog in the history of the Blues. Nadine Cohodas talks about her book, and the Chess Brothers - Only on BBS!
