Perhaps no one is more responsible for bringing deep Mississippi blues to a wider, global audience in the last 30 years than Junior Kimbrough. His influence can be heard in the sound of bands including the Black Keys, The White Stripes, and the North Mississippi Allstars.

Throughout the day on Thursday, July 28th, WUMB will celebrate the music of Junior Kimbrough. Hear the Artist of the Day sets in the 9 AM, noon, 3 PM, and 7 PM hours each weekday.
