World Cafe Travel Adventures went to Memphis and Clarksdale, Mississippi in October. While in Clarksdale, as part of WXPN's Mississippi Blues Project, we visited Red's Blues Club, a legendary juke joint. Red Paden, the owner of Red's talks about the rich history of the club and the blues. Also featured is a performance from Robert "Bilbo" Walker. The video produced by Roger LaMay, WXPN Station Manager and Bob Giardini (bobg-media.com/video.php).
