Blues music icon Muddy Waters is our "Focus Beam" artist this week. Hear about his story and a couple of great tunes from his stellar discography. Plus, hear influences like Big Bill Broonzy, Robert Nighthawk, Son House, Big Joe Williams and a few of the many that he influenced including ZZ Top, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC and Eric Clapton. Jammin' James Riley has a Ronnie Self track in Rockabilly Rewind and we spin a tune from the youngest of Muddy Waters' children...the late, great Mojo Morganfield.
