Ep074: Delta Blues Historian Gayle Dean Wardlow

Gayle Dean Wardlow started a record collection in the 1960s by knocking on doors in the deep south but soon he was also collecting stories and facts about the blues musicians he loved, including Charlie Patton, Son House, Robert Johnson, Willie Brown & more. Today we talk to Mr Wardlow about these musicians and their wild stories plus we discuss a rarely known bluesman Hayes McMullan who's material has just only just been released.
