Blue Light Boogie

Fri. at 9 P.M. and Sat. at 4 P.M.

"I got hooked on the blues the day I realized all of my favorite rock 'n' roll songs were really blues," says Art Hooker, host of YPR's Blue Light Boogie.

This two-hour program takes the listener from the blues' mighty traditions to its latest releases, with a bit of history and a lot of context from Art, who is also a musician with time logged in everything from polka bands to bar-burning boogie woogie combos.
