Say Amen, Somebody!

A little braggin' for a local radio show with an upcoming special.

The Juke Joint, a weekly radio show on Central Michigan University's public radio station, WCMU, is broadcasting its annual gospel tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., this coming Sunday, Jan. 15th at 8:00 p.m. EST. If you click on the "radio" link at the bottom of the link, you'll get to a page where you can click on the "Listen Live" feature.

The Juke Joint, which spotlights both vintage and contemporary blues, R&B, gospel and zydeco music, is actually a volunteer production. Robert Barclay, the host, has a day job as CMU's university photographer and videographer; he's also a guy who just loves the blues. So CMU public radio, to its credit, lets him spin his favorite tunes a couple of hours each week. A pretty decent gig, I'd say.

If you're free Sunday evening at 8:00, tune in for some righteous gospel music.
