Big Hollow Blues

with host, Dr. Robert
Saturdays from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

“When a woman gets the blues, she hangs her head and cries…….when a man get the blues, he catches a train and rides.”

The Blues, especially traditional blues from the early part of the 20th century, in a nutshell.  It has been turned on it’s head many times over the decades with women catching the train and men doing plenty of crying.  The African-American slavery experience gave rise to the blues most of us are familiar with, but the states of mind and emotion are part of our planetary human condition. The blues in musical form is something that speaks to us in many ways, and not just when we need it the most. If you aren’t familiar with the music that has come from generations of folk enduring hard times, now is your opportunity to hear what treasures this music holds. Thanks for tuning in! – Dr. Robert
