Hardluck Jim Celebrates 25 Years of Weekend Blues

Sep 20, 2017

This is the Manager’s Minute.

This fall we are celebrating a milestone for a person who has become an institution at KGOU.

KGOU Program Director Jim Johnson is marking 25 years – a quarter of a century – behind the microphone as producer and host of The Weekend Blues.

For a lot of us, Hardluck Jim IS the blues.

He’s taught us about the artists, the songs, the history and the state of mind that make blues music a distinctly American art form. He also mixes in some R&B, jazz and more, just to change the pace.

For twenty-five years, The Weekend Blues show has been a comfortable place to slow down, settle in and enjoy a journey into the world of blues, with Hardluck Jim.

Congratulations, Jim!

Until next time, with the Manager’s Minute, I’m Dick Pryor.
