Junior Wells will be our Artist of the Week tonight. Next Monday, December 12, we welcome Buddy Guy to the studio for a live, one hour visit. Junior was born on December 9, 1934, in West Memphis, Arkansas. As we approach the anniversary of his birth we honor Junior annually as our Artist of the Week. We always touch on some of his early recordings, his excellent later recordings, too, but we never leave out the period that Junior Wells and Buddy Guy were the original blues brothers. Then next week we are very excited to once again have as our guest in the studio our town’s top bluesman, Buddy Guy. We’ll talk about his upcoming 16 shows at his club Buddy Guy’s Legends and who knows what else. Hear Blues Breakers every Monday night on 93xrt from 9p-10p. Thanks.
