The Blues Foundation Podcast - Season 1: Blues Hall of Fame
Season 1 opens with the first artist to be inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame, Robert Johnson - King of the Delta Blues.
Johnson was hailed as a genius by those that knew him. His style and technique were so ahead of his time that almost a century later, his recordings still astonish listeners. His list of devotees includes rock'n'roll royalty: Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, and Bob Dylan, to name just a few.
