Congratulations to Dr Ian Bell for 17 years of the best specialist blues music show on the 89.5FM or online – Blues in the Bush, Sundays from 8-10pm.
With its roots firmly in African soil, yet germinating in a far continent in conditions of slavery and extreme hardship, the Blues has flowered and grown over generations to be the single greatest influence in modern popular music. Dr Bell has an extensive collection of rare blues albums and plays the music, as well as providing detailed information about the evolution of blues, the social and cultural contexts of the music, and information about individual tracks.
Since October 1996, a tasty two hours of the best of the Blues, along with something of its history, origin, development, sociology and biography.
