CLARKSDALE, Mississippi

Inspired by the 1979 cult classic movie The Warriors, The Delta Bohemians, Magical Madge and Poor William, have created a 45-second radio spot for play on the West Coast.

This radio spot will first be aired on Bill Bowker’s ‘Blues with Bowker’ show (Sunday evenings from 7 to 10) which is one of the longest running blues shows in the country. Bill will also play the spot when he hosts ‘Krush Americana’ on Monday evenings.

Clarksdale’s beloved semi-fixture and multiple Grammy and Blues Music Award Winner, Charlie Musselwhite, will push the DB on his very own radio show ‘Charlie’s Back Room.’

The Delta Bohemian thanks these pioneers for keeping the blues alive and for being Delta Bohemians. Thanks for subscribing guys!

We also thank Charles Evans, owner of The Clark House Residential Inn, for connecting The Delta Bohemians with these two iconic Clarksdale visitors.

Please visit the KRSH website to hear live streaming of these shows.

WATCH the VIDEO which showcases the 45-second radio spot along with a collection of photographs of The Delta Bohemians at work and play in the Mississippi Delta in Clarksdale.

    Holy Shit! The Warriors. That movie is one of my favorites. I love the Baseball Furries and the Orphans. Brings back good memories and a great sountrack. Thanks, Ken Murphey

  5. Hola, Ken. Poor William loves that movie, too! I, on the other hand, have never seen it but I have seen a clip of the very scene we mimic in our radio spot. Funny, huh?!! We are going to add a few pieces to it at the end to help explain more of just what/who is The Delta Bohemian! Got any clues?!?! ­čśÄ

  6. I love that movie! Ms Madge, you should definately watch it with W.P.H. Will see ya’ll soon. “Good Lord Willing and The Levee Don’t Break”.
