Jerry “Boogie” McCain is the featured artist on Blues Cruise this Friday beginning at 6:00 PM Central Time. Jerry got his start with the Trumpet record label in Jackson Mississippi in 1953. He recorded for quite a few record labels over the years but may be best known for his work with the Excello label from 1955-1957 and Jewel from 1965-1968. He is probably best known for writing and performing “She’s Tough” which was a break out hit for the Fabulous Thunderbirds which propelled their career. He was very entertaining to talk to and broke out into song during the interview several times. He was a very inventive songwriter and we will be featuring music from his most of his career. This show was originally broadcast on Two For the Blues in July 2006.
