Art Of The Song 7:00 am
Roger Daltrey

this week on Art of the Song we present an unusual story. In 2012, guitarist Wilko Johnson of Dr. Feelgood fame, was diagnosed with a terminal form of cancer and given 10 months to live. He approached his friend Roger Daltrey of The Who and asked his assistance to record one final album. A session was set up and the two collaborated for one week in the studio, emerging with ?Going Back Home,? an album which subsequently won ?Album of the Year? at the British Classic Rock Awards. A few months ago, we were all set to interview Wilko Johnson remotely from a studio in London, when we got a call from the publicist saying, ?Wilko isn?t feeling well today, and we?ll have to cancel.? Sadly, we went about our business. Half an hour later we received another call saying, Roger Daltrey was in the studio, and would we mind interviewing him instead? Didn?t take long for us to respond with a resounding, YES! The result was an intimate chat with the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer about the project with Wilko Johnson, his charity work with teen cancer patients, and we even got a chance to talk about the early days of The Who

American Routes 12:00 pm
Living With the Blues

this week on American Routes, we're roaming the highways, byways and crossroads of the Magnolia State, looking for all kinds of blues. We sit down with noted blues scholar Bill Ferris to talk about his lifelong obsession with the music of his home state, and visit with Delta piano blues chanteuse Eden Brent to learn about her music mentor Boogaloo Ames. We set out north for Holly Springs and some Hill Country family jams. Then we head towards home to hang out at Teddy's Juke Joint, and catch up with the master of the gut-bucket blues, Little Freddie King
