Hurt would introduce 'Coffee Blues' by declaring that his favorite coffee was Maxwell House because it was 'good till the last drop.' This is the kind of song that comes with a wink and a nudge. At the Gaslight, the mug Hurt would bring to the stage was not filled with coffee, but with a spot of whiskey. - John Milward, notes from Mississippi John Hurt, The Complete Studio Recordings

Honky Tonks, Hymns and the Blues

Check out the audio streams -- I really liked parts 2 ("Country Guitar"), 5 ("The Rise of the Blues") & 6 ("Jimmie Rodgers").

Thanks for the "heads-up" - it looks like fascinating web site, and the programs will provide some interesting listening. The old radio ads can be quite entertaining!

Man, that looks so interesting I don't know where to start, maybe at the beginning. It would be great if they were available as podcasts then I could listen to them without being stuck in front of the computer.

Wonder if we can get any of those old radio ads onto the juke?
