Host: Blues Breakers
At ‘XRT we still hear from people who tell us they’ve been listening since we were a part-time, underground station. Tom says he’s been listening longer than that. His first personal contact with ‘XRT was when he met John Platt. He invited Tom to visit him while on the air at WGLD, a one-time progressive rock station based in Oak Park. Tom thought, “cool job.” [Read Tom’s Full Bio]
Blues Breakers, now every Sunday at 9pm, celebrates John Lee Hooker tonight. John Lee was born 100 years ago this Tuesday. Still one of the most popular artists in the Blues. And we’ll be playing a new George Thorogood solo tribute to both John Lee Hooker and Earl Hooker and more.
At Blues Breakers we have always been big fans of Luther Allison. No blues player was ever more intense in his playing or singing than this West Sider. We always remember Luther in August as it is both the month of his birth and of his death.
