Each Blues Disciples podcast has a primary purpose to entertain and then to help listeners better understand the importance of the blues music genre in our history and culture. We let our listeners know of the incredible obstacles faced by generations of blues artists as they struggled to raise themselves from the poverty and oppression they faced as tenant farmers in the South. These early blues artists were self-taught for the most part and we highlight their commitments and creativity that increased their audience and differentiated them from their peers. Each podcast contains short discussions of the upcoming artists, the songs and some career highlights prior to playing each song within an 11 – 14 song playlist (podcasts recorded prior to Show #10 have fewer songs). From time to time, we interview current blues artists and highlight their music during a podcast. With each tune we play, we now identify the artist and composer and note the dates of the composition and performance.
