Blues Unlimited has already been called the best radio show of its kind, and has established a loyal, worldwide audience.
Blues Unlimited is a two-hour weekly radio show devoted to the wonderful world of the blues, and its history, heritage, and rich cultural traditions. Each installment of Blues Unlimited is typically designed to be a self-contained episode, and explores some topic or aspect of the blues universe – piano players from New Orleans, harp blowers from Chicago and Los Angeles, the blues revival of the ’60s, or the origins of famous blues songs – while other shows focus on regional styles: Detroit, Memphis, the Mississippi Hill Country, Shreveport, Texas, and the East Coast. Profiles of classic record labels like Imperial, Sun, Chess/Checker, Arhoolie, etc., are also included
Important historical milestones are often recognized – such as a two part-series on the American Folk Blues Festival Tours and an unprecedented four-part series on the Newport Folk and Jazz Festivals. Sometimes, a series of albums are featured – such as Harry Smith’s “Anthology of American Folk Music,” or “Chicago/The Blues/Today!” – produced by Sam Charters for Vanguard in the mid 60s.
Steve Franz (who is known on the airwaves as Sleepy Boy Hawkins) has been a blues fanatic, researcher, historian, radio programmer, and scholar for 30 years. He is the author of the critically acclaimed book, “The Amazing Secret History of Elmore James,” having earned his Master’s Degree in Ethnomusicology from the University of Memphis.
Showtime: Saturday’s from 12 Noon – 4 p.m.

Curious about jazz but don’t know much about it? If so, this show is for you.
We understand that jazz often needs a proper introduction and Jeff seeks to open people’s ears to the music not just by spinning discs, but by showing how jazz connects to the things that already matter to us: from movies, television and pop culture, to important social issues, to the economy and technology, to other forms of music. In other words, we don’t just assume jazz is important—we show you why through compelling interviews with some of the music’s big thinkers, vibrant storytelling, and music that represents the full gamut of jazz’s rich history. And because we use storytelling as our approach to the music, if you’re a person who likes a good story, you’ll probably like this show.
Showtime: Saturdays from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m.
