Weekend Blues

Saturdays 1 - 5 p.m. and Sundays 1 - 4 p.m.

A journey into the best in Blues, downhome Soul, classic R&B, and "roots"-inspired Rock n' Roll with "Hardluck" Jim Johnson -- some of the best music to ever ease a worried mind! The Weekend Blues has a strong commitment to Oklahoma's fine musicians and the many independent and lesser-known artists struggling to be heard. In addition, Jim offers the occasional artist "from out of the Blue" who may not be formally associated with the music, but who in one way or another either borrows from or contributes to the expanding landscape of the Blues.

Willis Alan Ramsey writes curious songs that fire up the imagination: from the love affair between a honeybee and chrysanthemum to the lonely travels of a tormented vagabond named Spider John. His storytelling is so compelling and vivid that fellow songwriters across genres consider him royalty. Captain and Tennille, Jerry Jeff Walker, Jimmy Buffett, Waylon Jennings, Widespread Panic, Shawn Colvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore have all mined his material.
