Big Town Blues

HOSTED BY Wrett Weatherspoon

Saturdays, 5-9 PM

According to show host Wrett Weatherspoon, "the blues are a part of American culture that needs to be understood more and get more respect. Although blues have continued to grow through the generations, it's been a struggle to get music industry recognition for the genre." Join Wrett every Saturday while he spins the blues by new & classic artists, bringing a heightened awareness of the suffering and joys of bluesmen and blueswomen to his listeners.
