Next Saturday is Make a Difference Day and it got me to thinking about who are the difference makers in the blues?  What blues performers paved the way, set trends for countless other recording artists.  I'll use this list as the theme for my show on this day.

My short list right now is 
Mamie or Bessie Smith
Leroy Carr/Scrapper Blackwell
Tampa Red
Louis Jordan
B.B. King
Jimmy Reed
Muddy Waters
Sonny Boy Williamson I or Little Walter 
Stevie Ray Vaughan
