The Maxwell Street Birthday Blues Jam

"There was a celebration Sunday to mark the 100th birthday of Maxwell Street," Rick Kogan said on WBEZ's Afternoon Shift on Tuesday. "It was not a big party and not held on Maxwell Street."

Indeed. Here's the birthday blues jam in three parts.




And Kogan's audio essay:


* Here's To Bobby Too Tuff

* Remembering Lil' Scotty: Bluesman, Buttonman

* Lil' Scotty: 'Give Him His Flowers While He Lives'

* Remembering Lacy Gibson, Master Bluesman

* The Maxwell Street Muddle.

* Maxwell Street Malfeasance.

* City Needs New Policy For The Maxwell Street Market: An Open Letter To Mayor-Elect Emanuel.
