    Rudy Maxa's World [#103] Istanbul, Turkey Everywhere in the Turkish capital is evidence of civilizations that tried to tame it. From the Romans to the Ottomans, this tumultuous city has seen it all, and its architecture, cuisine, and customs reflect that reality. Here, Christianity and Islam have their touchstones, and the cliche that "East meets West" at the Bosporus is a truism. Rudy tries to avoid buying a Turkish carpet - he admits he's powerless to visit Istanbul without returning home with a rug - but, as usual, he fails. Prowl some of the Grand Bazaar's 2000 shops and spend some time with a professional shopper who teaches travelers the fine art of haggling. And can those Turkish carpets tell stories? Many do - stories of love and despair are woven in wool and color. Rudy gets steamed and scrubbed in a 16th century hammam, or public bath, and tours some of the world's great buildings - Topkapi Palace, the Aya Sofia, the Blue Mosque, and the downtown Spice Market. Be hypnotized by Whirling Dervishes, charmed by the Iznik art of ceramics, and learn how to buy a - carpet. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Woodsongs [#1913H] Celebration of Muddy Waters with John Primer, Bob Margolin and Paul Oscher Muddy Waters is an American Icon. The whole story of the blues can be heard, felt, and learned in his life. Country blues were Muddy's roots and remained at his core, but through the force of his artistry he transformed them. With electricity, volume, the weaving of bass and guitar lines with piano, harmonica and drums, he created the ensemble sound and subsequently the template for future Rock and Pop groups including the Beatles and The Rolling Stones. His music's raw power and energy, plus his attitude and magnetism - Muddy was the prototype for the iconic Rock'n Roll star - are still the major ingredients that inspire the popular music we listen to today.
    Muddy Waters 100 is a tribute album to Muddy's music and legacy on the occasion of his 100th birthday. Produced by Grammy-nominated producer Larry Skoller, the album includes 15 newly recorded tracks featuring Muddy Waters Band alumni and many of today's most preeminent American blues and roots artists This WoodSongs Special Event Broadcast will be celebrating the music and legacy of Muddy Waters and feature two of the artists on this historic Grammy nominated release plus another legendary blues musician.
    Performing on this broadcast: John Primer is recognized as one of today's most crucial keepers of the Chicago blues flame. He broke through playing with the great Willie Dixon, spent more than a decade alongside Magic Slim, and has released 15 albums of his own. In between Willie Dixon and Magic Slim, though, was the event that changed his life. Muddy Waters asked John to join his band, a gig which John faithfully remained with until Muddy's death in 1983. John has since then felt a genuine responsibility to carry on Muddy's legacy. In fact, John handles most of the lead vocals and guitar playing on Muddy Waters 100.
    Bob Margolin is a multi-award winning guitar player/songwriter/singer/producer. Inspired by Chuck Berry, he started playing guitar at age 15 and immediately started performing in local rock and blues bands. Margolin was hired by Muddy Waters in 1973 and toured the world and jammed with many great blues and rock musicians, "but the biggest thrill was playing Muddy's Blues with him." Muddy brought Margolin with him to special shows and recordings including the Grammy Award-winning 'Muddy Waters Woodstock Album' and The Band's 'Last Waltz' concert. Since leaving Muddy's band in 1980, Margolin started his own band, won several BMA's, produced albums for numerous artists including Muddy's son Big Bill Morganfield, played on several Grammy-winning records, began a second career as a music writer, and produced and consulted on reissues of Muddy Waters' recordings for the Blue Sky Label for Sony/Legacy. His latest solo release is 'My Road' and appears as a special guest on Muddy Waters 100.
    Paul Oscher is an award-winning blues singer, songwriter, recording artist, and multi-instrumentalist, (harmonica, guitar, piano, melodica, and bass harp). He first came to national attention as Muddy Waters' harmonica player from 1967-1972 following in the footsteps of Little Walter, Junior Wells, James Cotton, and Big Walter Horton. Paul was was the first white musician in the world to become a full-time member of a black blues band of this stature. Paul is currently in the process of writing a book about his life's experience in the blues and has won multiple BMA's as a solo artist. WoodSongs Kids: Patrick Long & Connor Stith perform in a highly renowned blues band around Bowling Green, Kentucky called Mo' Pie. The band has performed at the youth showcase at the International Blues Challenge on Beale Street several times. Patrick is 16 and from Clarksville, Tennessee and Connor is 17 from Bowling Green, Kentucky.
