Jess Ratcliff’s R&B Show Special
Written by imills on 19th April 2012
Got a special show this month. My artist of the month is Blind Willie Johnson and the theme is ‘Gospel’. Blind Willie is a massive figure in 20th Century music although many people won’t have heard of him. As a spritual’s singer and guitar evangelist, his songs and playing have influenced artists as diverse a Eric Clapton, Beth Rowley, The White Stripes, The Grateful Dead, Peter, Paul & Mary, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin and Robert Randolph & the Family band. Show goes out tonight at 8.00 p.m., repeated Saturday 7.00 p.m. Don’t miss it!!
P.S. Don’t forget to ‘like’ my Facebook page and please drop me a line to let me know what you think of the show and any requests you would like me to play.
