Episode 187 features an interview with American author Preston Lauterbach about influential blues man Robert Johnson. Though only 27-years-young and relatively unknown at the time of his tragic death in 1938, Robert Johnson's enduring recordings have gone on to influence a myriad of musicians from all over the planet. Johnson is credited with laying the foundations for rock ‘n’ roll with songs like “Love in Vain” ‘Sweet Home Chicago” and “Cross Road Blues”.  A new book: Brother Robert: Growing Up With Robert Johnson is an intimate memoir told by blues legend Robert Johnson's stepsister, Annye Anderson (aged 94) and written by Preston Lauterbach..  Book cover Courtesy of Hachette Books, all rights reserved
