Contributing writer Tom Laskin profiles local bluesman Paul Black, who recalls listening to music as a kid. "I'd turn the radio on and I'm tunin' in lookin' for either the Braves or the Pirates or the Mets game or something - any baseball game at all - and I'd run across cool radio stations playin' cool black music. I'd say, 'Wow! This is some cool stuff!' And I'd start gettin' the names, but I couldn't find these records…. [Y]ou'd have to look in the folk music bin to find Muddy Waters or Jimmy Reed or Little Walter or Robert Johnson. I fell in love with this stuff, 'cause it was raw and cool and it moved me." Black no longer performs regularly in Madison.
