"In July 1939, the engineers from Vocalion Records set up shop for two weeks in Memphis, cutting almost 170 sides by more than a dozen artists. The 78s they made, by Blind Boy Fuller, Little Buddy Doyle, Jack Kelly, and Charlie Burse, among others, marked the last chapter of recording activity in the Bluff City prior to World War II. It?s the last great field trip to Memphis, on this episode of Blues Unlimited."

A two hour radio show with some great artists.
