Today's show is part two of a spotlight on some great blues partners that made recordings between the 1920's on up. Big names this time out include Big Joe Turner and Pete Johnson, Blind Willie McTell and Curley Weaver and Sleepy John Estes and Hammie Nixon. Butch Cage and Willie Thomas had been playing together for some time before Harry Oster began recording them in 1959. We hear from some talented siblings today including the wonderful Nugrape Twins and the Sparks Brothers. Others heard from today include Lucille Bogan and pianist Walter Roland who recorded extensively together, and the team of Big Joe Williams and Sonny Boy Williamson. Other heard from today include Willie Ford and Lucious Curtis who recorded together and individually for the Library of Congress, the under-recorded Skoodle Dum Doo and Sheffield and John Cephas and Phil Wiggins who performed and recorded together for three decades.
