Host Steve Inskeep talks with blues guitarist James Mathus, who was in Washington, D.C., recently with his band, The James Mathus Knockdown Society. Mathus plays what he categorizes as "juke joint boogie," which can be heard on his latest CD, Stop and Let the Devil Ride. (Stop and Let the Devil Ride is released by Fast Horse.)
