The Blues on Radio 4

Just a note to readers about an item on Radio 4 this morning.  This was an analysis of the blues presented by Nick Barraclough.  The 12 bar blues is the basis of lots of popular music since, and it was said that, Chris Barber was the musician who spotted its potential, even before the white musicians in the USA.  Apparently Muddy Waters wouldn't have come to this country if it hadn't been for Chris Barber.  There was a quite technical analysis of the blues, with information about the contribution of WC Handy.  So if you want to know more, (although many readers will already know about all this), check out the BBC i player (Saturday 20th 10.30am )
