After consulting his preacher to make sure there was nothing sinful about playing blues records on the radio Mr. Wright decided to give it a try. He did it six days a week almost until his death on what became one of America's longest-running radio programs. From 6 o'clock to 9, he was the 'Soul Man' playing the blues. For the last two hours he was 'Brother Early' playing gospel music - Early Wright, obituary to the DJ, WROX Clarksdale

Fascinating gallery, thanks.
But why should I be familiar with #41? Have I missed something?

I think JohnLee is referring to the "Juke Joint" photo in the generic sense.

Great photos.  Very interested in the photos of homesteaders in Pie Town, NM - which is in my backyard.  Lord, what a life.  'course there are still people "homesteading" NM... with photo-voltaic cells, they just call it 'living off the grid'.

It's a tempting lifestyle... but what would I do without my favourite blues discussion ite

I noticed a familiar by-line on many of those photos. Jack Delano also took this classic: http://pinterest.com/pin/774124908125276/
