Radio host to present Blues program at Portage Library May 11

HOUGHTON -- Local radio host and music historian Anthony Daniel has the blues, and he wants to share them at the Portage Lake District Library on Wednesday, May 11.

At 6 p.m., he will host the game show without a TV audience, "Blues Clues," and invites everyone to come and test their trivia knowledge about the blues and rock and roll.

The multi-media presentation "Black, White and the Blues: A Look at the Blues Hall of Fame" will be shown at 6:30 p.m. followed at 7 p.m. by the documentary film Sweet Home Chicago. This film tells the real story behind Chess Records, one of the most influential record labels in American pop music.

Currently the host of the program "Yearbook: the 1960s" on WMPL, Daniel was the host of the award-winning historical blues radio program "Forbidden Radio," heard in the Detroit area in the mid-1990s.

Library programs are free and everyone is welcome. For more information, please call the library at 482-4570 or visit www.pldl.org.
