Playing The Burque Blues: Part Two
Tuesday, 5/18, 9p Home of Happy Feet
This program explores the people, places and flavor of the blues music scene in Albuquerque, as told by leading Duke City blues musicians and former KUNM blues deejays. Often overlooked in the international blues world, Albuquerque has spawned a significant and uniquely New Mexican blues music community in recent decades.
The program series features rare recordings from early 1970s KUNM shows and live music venues. Hear about legendary blues venues including the Thunderbird Bar in Placitas, Okie's bar across from UNM and El Madrid. Featuring Cadillac Bob's Joan Cere, Native bluesman Roger Cultee, Rudy Jaramillo, Sherri Gonzales, Raven Rutherford, J.D. Sipe of the Memphis P. Tails, and others.
Produced by Kent Paterson, Marty Adamsmith and Mercedes Mejia. Support provided by the Arts and Culture Department and the Urban Enhancement Trust Fund of the City of Albuquerque.
Note: Part One aired Saturday, May 8, 7 pm on Ear to the Ground. Both programs can be heard up to two weeks after their airdates by going to the "Programs" tab at the top of the KUNM website's homepage and scrolling down to the two-week archive.
