Juke Joint Jive

Fridays from 10 PM - 12 AM

Juke Joint Jive with your host Chip Myles. Chip is a longtime supporter of WFIT and has hosted several local blues shows on the radio dial. Chip brings a wealth of knowledge and passion for blues, soul and gospel music.

If you're in Clarksdale, Miss., home of the Delta blues, everybody says you have to go to Red's juke joint. The hole-in-the-wall club is the real deal. It's just a small room, a few tables and a fridge full of beer. Red lights are strung around a low ceiling. On the night we visit, octogenarian Leo "Bud" Welch plays in the center of the room, hunched over a sparkly, hot pink, electric guitar. Red Paden, the owner, sits out front, surveying from behind the bar.

Former member of the Muddy Water’s Blues Band Paul Oscher will speak with WFIT’s Chip Myles on Blues To Brimstone on Oct. 1 Saturday morning 6am-8am.
 
Paul Oscher played with Muddy Waters in the sixties. Oscher has also worked with T-Bone Walker, Otis Spann, John Lee Hooker and Eric Clapton.
