      The Blues Show

   The Blues Show with Jonny Meister airs Saturday nights

                       from 7PM to Midnight on WXPN.


Coming Up On  The Blues Show  March 25, 2017:

The Chuck Berry songs that haven't been played on the radio, including some of his recordings for the Mercury label and tracks from the fake live album Chuck Berry On Stage.

In the midnight hour on Blue Dimensions, Program BD-F13The Late & Great James Cotton — and Abdullah Ibrahim's 'Ancient Africa' reissued — the great blues harmonica player James Cotton died at age 81 on March 16th. We'll hear him with the Muddy Waters Band, in which he contributed so much to their sound, and leading his own bands, including a 1965 outfit that was recorded for the classic series Chicago/The Blues/Today. Also, Guitarist Kevin Eubanks had sessions on the east coast and the west coast with different bands for his new album East West Time Line; we'll visit both coasts with him. Plus: the remarkable South African pianist Abdullah Ibrahim. Starting out as Dollar Brand performing in his native Capetown, he built his career outside of his homeland because of the apartheid government there at the time. Drawing on the hymns he heard in church as a boy, and mixing in some Thelonious Monk-like dissonance and other ingredients, he has a unique sound and history in jazz. Delmark Records has reissued his magical solo album Ancient Africa from the Sackville label; we'll hear a wonderful medley of a hymn-like composition and a blues-based jazz journey that is probably too long for many radio stations - - but certainly not so for us!

About The Blues Show and Jonny Meister

The Blues Show airs every Saturday night from 7:00 to Midnight on XPN. Host Jonny Meister explores this music and its history not only because it is the key ingredient in later rock and pop music, but also because of its own special allure and unique power as a style of music and expression of the human soul.

Catherine Russell and Jonny
Jonny Meister with Catherine Russell

The Blues Show covers the entire history of the blues from 1920 to the present, from the best-known to the most obscure blues, with focus on the present-day blues, but with an eye on the rich history of this music and its large body of timeless recordings.

Host Jonny Meister has been playing the blues on WXPN since March 1977. Meister grew up with old blues records in the house. His father played boogie woogie on the piano, which Jonny learned at about the age of 12. Later he played in rock bands and did a few solo gigs as a singer-songwriter. As his interest in blues grew, he became especially interested in the history of the music, a history not always revealed by the rock musicians and their promoters who drew heavily on the blues.

Jonny spent a week with the family of the late, great blues musician J. B. Lenoir in 1979, and he was one of the consultants for the Wim Wenders film The Soul Of A Man which featured Lenoir, in the PBS film series The Blues. He won the "Keeping The Blues Alive" award for work in Public Radio for The Blues Show in 2000 and a "Best of Philly" award from Philadelphia Magazine in 1996 for "Best Local Radio Show".
