We're on a mission to ensure that the music from back in the 1920's/30's, and the wonderful artists of the earliest days, are never forgotten, nor are they allowed to disappear into obscurity. Join us as we go 'Backtracking to the Delta' and beyond, up to the present day, making all the stops along the way. .. with a side order of Soul .... Hopefully, W C Handy, would have approved .... Enjoy the very best of the Blues ..
