Destination Out gets a great guest post from saxophonist and composer Rudresh Mahanthappa:
"In much the same way that there are albums or tracks of any genre that we love or have even changed our lives, I simply want to share some Indian music that has done the same for me, along with a little back-story as to how I came across these artists. Perhaps you will be turned onto some music you haven’t heard before."
Big Road Blues puts the focus on postwar Detroit blues with an essay covering their latest broadcast:
"Though the city had a number of corner taverns during the 1940s and 1950s, which featured down home blues, numerous Detroit bluesmen found their first jobs in the house party scene. Among the early clubs were places like Henry’s Swing club celebrated in a song by John Lee Hooker, the Harlem Inn, The Palms, The Flame, Club Three Sixes and the Paradise Theater."
