Host Nate Wilcox welcomes Nadine Cohodas author of "Spinning Blues Into Gold: The Chess Brothers and the Legendary Chess Records" to discuss the storied label. They cover the Chicago Blues and Rock and Roll that earned the label much of its fame but focus much of their attention on Etta James, Fontella Bass and other legends of soul music who cut for Chess in the 50s and 60s.
