Bebop Spoken There

Veronica Swift: "The gigs will be coming back because people need music. Your political system and your economy can fail you but what's the one thing that people always turn to?." - (DownBeat November 2020)

Blues & Beyond with Cerys Matthews & Val Wilmer - Tonight, 8pm. BBC4

The above programme is previewed in the i newspaper as a 'Critic's Choice'. The subject centres around the many American blues legends who enjoyed touring (and living in) Britain and Europe in the 1950s and early 1960s.
Clips from shows such as Ready Steady Go featuring John Lee Hooker and Champion Jack Dupree along with Muddy Waters, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Peggy Lee (Peggy Lee?) are some of the delights in store for enthusiasts of the blues.
The i's critic also refers to Wilmer telling of the time he [Ms. Wilmer!] had to rescue Jimi Hendrix from over-eager fans.
