...in a car wreck in a little town called Mound Bayou Miss. I was visiting my mother. I drove 700 miles from Chicago. I was okay but on the return I fell asleep at the wheel. I was playing again the next day though. I never gave up. It cut my arm clean off and left it in the highway. Then I walked 2.5 miles to a girlfriend and picked up my arm and brought it on to Clarksdale. When the ambulance men come with stretchers, I was in bed smoking, so I drove back in front with the guys. I was in hospital for three days only. For a while I still had pain at night. As you know, fever rises at night and that's how it was - Big John Wrencher on losing his arm

Juke replacement therapy
« on: February 24, 2014, 07:48:58 PM »
In light of the imminent unplugging of the Juke, I thought it might be useful to start a thread listing other ways to access country blues online.

Spotify has loads of Document recordings (the whole catalog?). Not available in some countries (like Canada). Price?

Rdio - a friend has started using this. She found Lulu Jackson through it, so it seems safe to say it's got obscure stuff. 10 bucks a month.

Any others?

Good idea, beljum. I've moved this topic to the Juke board and made it a sticky topic.

I stumbled on three epiodes of an online stream named "John Heneghan’s Old Time Radio Show"  that were entertaining. Don Kent is the guest and relates a few of his experiences as a record collector. The shows are interviews with records played. All music is acoustic and 78 RPM.

John Heneghan has a bunch of those "old-time radio shows" - very entertaining. In addition to Don Kent, he's got a lot with R. Crumb, as well as Rich Nevins, Pat Conte, and shows that just spin records from his collection. You can download from his website http://www.eastriverstringband.com/radioshow/  or get them as podcasts on the iTunes store.

Ran across this excellent site/stream out of Poland;

http://radioderf.info/
Select "Delta"

It still amazes me how far reaching the genre of country blues is. I used to enjoy checking out the listener map on the juke.
