What's on Now

'DCB Jazz


Blacks & Blues

Saturday, 10 to 11 p.m.

Program Host(s): Doug Curry

A Harlem native, lifelong blues lover, writer, record collector, historian and poet, Doug Curry has hosted blues radio programs for more than 40 years. His weekly “Blacks and Blues” program on WDCB highlights the full spectrum of blues music past & present, acoustic & electric, with a perspective that spotlights the history of the people, places, and even the politics behind the recordings. Each week, Curry connects the dots between evolution of the music and larger forces of Black culture from which the music is nurtured. He brings both a scholarly enthusiasm and a hip, confident swagger to each show, delivering the blues with a style all his own. Each week’s show begins Wynonie Harris’s “Mr. Blues is Comin’ to Town” and ends with the Ray Charles instrumental, “Ray’s Blues.”

This program is available for sponsorship! (Contact Ken Scott for more details.)
