Last week on Amazon, “Blues Unlimited: The Complete Radio Show Transcripts, Vol. 1” was the #1 NEW RELEASE in Music History & Criticism and also in Music Reference — the first new book from from ethnomusicologist, author, historian, and independent radio producer Steve Franz in more than 16 years.

“This Week in Blues History” aims the spotlight on important recordings, artists, and events from the golden era of the blues. This time, we profile the historic March 1932 recording sessions held by Vocalion in New York City, as the nation was in the grips of the Great Depression.

Join us for a special tribute to slide guitar master Earl Hooker. During the spring and summer of 1969, he recorded extensively for Bluesway, behind folks like Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, Charles Brown, Jimmy Witherspoon, Johnny "Big Moose" Walker, and more, becoming one of the highlights of his career. In addition, we'll also be featuring a few selections from the tribute album, "Do You Remember The Great Earl Hooker," composed of recordings he made in Sauk City, Wisconsin, in 1966 and 1967, with the help of Freddie Roulette. A look at the Bluesway recordings of Earl Hooker, on this episode of Blues Unlimited.

Pictured: This tribute album, issued by Bluesway in 1973, was compiled from recordings Hooker made in 1966 and 1967 in Sauk City, Wisconsin.
