Son House was a major influence on both Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters. His recordings are among the most powerful in blues history. After living in Rochester, NY for over thirty years he was rediscovered in the city in 1964. He went on to an acclaimed comeback, touring the country and the world.

In all, CFC has 60 programs within its nine service departments, available to the community at 17 locations throughout Monroe and Wayne Counties.
Jazz90.1/Big Road Blues
Jazz90.1 is Rochester's home for real jazz. The station broadcasts 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 90.1 FM, and over the Internet. Jazz90.1 plays more hours of live, local jazz than any radio station in the United States. In addition the station also has shows devoted to blues, latin, polka and more. Big Road Blues explores the forgotten history of the blues spanning the 1920's through the 1970's. In addition to classic artists, the show focuses an equal amount of time on those forgotten blues figures from the past; from the once popular artists who are now forgotten to the obscure artists who may have only cut a handful of 78's or 45's.
