Blues Before Sunrise
BSPR Music: Sat 11 a.m. – Sun 4 a.m.

"The blues is the roots, everything else is the fruits." - Willie Dixon

Blues Before Sunrise showcases blues as part of a cultural landscape that includes jump and jive, rhythm and blues, swing, doo wop, gospel, comedy, and recitation, and never is the music presented as kitsch or retro fashion in the way that some music has been exploited and trivialized. For host Steve Cushing, the blues is a living African-American tradition with deep roots.
