Tuesday's Just as Bad

Sep 29, 2020 11:30 PM β€“ 1:00 AM

Music

This program makes up the more acoustic half of WKCR's two blues shows. Tuesday's Just As Bad draws from an extensive library of pre-WWII blues recordings to present a strictly acoustic first set. The second hour features more of a variety, with an emphasis on the blues masters of the post-WWII era. The approach seems to work well, as some listeners claim that they have been listening to the program for all twenty of its years.
