It's an hour of blues and rock n roll as Memphis roots-rockers Lucero close out the first season of Beale Street Caravan for 2014. Once-were-punks Lucero play blue collar anthems about hard livin', lovin' and the southern way of life.

In the middle of the hour is a BSC archive special featuring the influential blues master, "Sleepy" John Estes, who began playing in the 1920's, but gave it all away in the forties, till he was rediscovered in the sixties. Sleepy John's set was recorded on the Memphis Blues Caravan in the early seventies.
