Asheville FM hosts dozens of weekly shows that run the gamut of musical styles and tastes (you name it, they've got it). But don't take our word for it: take theirs. Xpress brings you this weekly feature — direct from the DJs — highlighting a few of the station's stellar offerings. Blue Ridge Blues is a road trip to the heart of the blues, a two-hour Greyhound ride through the Mississippi Delta, New Orleans, Chicago and London — anywhere there's a story to be told and a song to sing it with. The program covers all kinds of blues (acoustic, roots, electric, English, blues-rock) from artists like BB King, John Mayall, Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Hammond, Albert King, John Lee Hooker and many more. Tuesdays from 10 p.m. to midnight with Paul Clipper (aka DJQ). Photo by Max Cooper
