Meet Your DJ

Jordan Clayton 
Backporch Blues Ramble
Sundays 5:00-7:00am
Q1What can people expect when they tune into the Backporch Blues Ramble?
This weekly radio show is about the beauty and, at times, simplicity of blues that feels like musicians enjoying and expressing themselves on a back porch somewhere. A lot of blues in the last 20 years or so has emphasized the amazing talents and technical mastery of certain musicians, but has sacrificed a bit of the originality and feeling at the core of the genre. This show shies away from anything that feels 'stale' or overly electric or produced, and instead emphasizes early-generation blues, and even more, the modern musicians and creative lyricists who have been inspired to carry on that tradition, such as Cephas and Wiggins, Corey Harris, Lucinda Williams, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Guy Davis, Eric Bibb, Hans Theesink, Jay Summerour and Warner Williams, Taj Mahal, Maria Muldaur, and many, many others. It's rootsy, country, acoustic, folky, or traditional style blues. The artists and songs played on this show understand that less is more and that blues should be about emotion and sincerity and rawness, about feeling, not technique, and about expression not replication nor virtuosity in musicianship. This show emphasizes those creative artists that are writing new songs in the roots blues tradition, reviving feeling-oriented sounds, and the artists that inspired them.
Q2: How long have you been a DJ for KRCL?  Do you remember how your first show went?
First show was March 2nd, 2014.  My first song: Cephas & Wiggins // The Blues Will Do Your Heart Good // Cool Down. 
Q3: Do you have a special feature on your show? 
Each week I feature two different versions or interpretations of a blues standard in a segment called "Two for the Blues". The first is either the original or a classic version of the song, and the second is an original, creative, unusual interpretation of that song. 
Q4If your music collection fell into a black hole, what three albums would you immediately replace?
That's a hard one. I find the premise too depressing to deal with. Plus, I'd presumably also be in the black hole and would therefore not be able to hear sound. (Editor's note: Nerd)
Q5: If a time machine were invented and you had access to one, what concert in the past would you go to?
I'd love to sit on the porch with Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee... any porch...
Q6: Do you remember the first concert you ever went to?  
First one? It was Elton John (Chicago, 1988), and honestly I hated it. I thought rock concerts were supposed to be wild and free-spirited, and he just sat there at his piano and played songs I'd never heard (at that point). Santana saved me a few months later (also Chicago)- their 15+ minute version of Soul Sacrifice was what I had been hoping for all along...
Q7: Anything else you want KRCL listeners to know?  
While roots blues has undergone a somewhat small but notable recent revival, this (mainly) acoustic, back porch style still gets fairly scant play on the radio. I hope that listeners might discover a type of blues that they find evocative and less predictable than what they may have formerly thought of when they heard the word 'blues'. In addition, I try to provide air time for local artists and events and international blues musicians.
