Backporch Blues Ramble

Sundays from 5-7 AM

Meet on the backporch for some rootsy, country, acoustic, folk-style blues. Hear new songs and singers in the roots blues tradition, the artists that inspired them, and some innovative, experimental blues taking the genre in new directions. Plus, the "Two for the Blues" feature airs at 6:20am with two different interpretations of a blues standard.  It's Backporch Blues Ramble with the beauty and, at times, simplicity of blues that focuses on feeling, sincerity, and rawness.
