KPLU All Blues
DJ John Kessler is a musician himself, and very professional in his knowledge and presence. Six hours may seem a bit much, but Kessler grips you from start to finish. Very impressive on the technical side, too. KPLU runs a smooth operation behind the scenes with very few glitches.

KNON Texas Blues
Blues with a strong mix of local artists from the rising music scene in Texas.

WRPI Stormy Monday Blues
Good program from a station on a tight budget. They sign off Monday nights at 10PM ET.
MON: 5:00PM TO 7:00PM
KCSS Wednesday Blues
Great music, but a bit amateurish in the presentation, often starting late and leaving an hour early. The DJ sometimes seems overwhelmed, like he'd rather be somewhere else. Still a good way to get over the midweek hump.
WED: 6:00pm TO 12:00AM
KSER Clancy’s Bar & Grill
There isn't actually a restaurant, but Clancy has good taste (or, by the show description, his boss does). Usually a guest midway through the show.
THU: 8:30PM to 10:30PM
WXPR Blues Friday
Six hours of great music, and a first-class DJ in Lisa Lee. Unfortunately Lee may be phasing her role out, as she seems to be on only three hours every two weeks now. The others just aren't quite at her level
FRI: 4:00PM TO 10:00PM
WGLT Blues Radio
Dedicated 24 hour blues radio from Illinois State University. Their weekly talk show Talkin’ Blues (FRI/SAT, 7PM CT) is fascinating and features some very noteworthy blues artists.
The Roadhouse Podcast
Only an hour, but it's packed with "the finest blues you've never heard." Tony Steidler-Denison is based in Iowa City, and gives a smooth presentation with his midwestern voice, with an emphasis on contemporary blues. Upload to your iPhone or Android and enjoy on your Sunday stroll. There's even an app for that.
