Welcome to KBT!

You’ve reached the King Biscuit Time website — where we’re bringing blues into the 21st century.  The King Biscuit Time radio show’s first broadcast in 1941 brought roots music to a mainstream audience for the first time, and was a watershed moment in African-American culture.  The daily programming of Sonny Boy Williamson, Pinetop Perkins, Robert Lockwood Jr., and other Delta blues legends laid the foundation for all blues, rock, pop, and hip-hop music today. The program is still broadcast each weekday on KFFA in Helena Arkansas, and the show’s record-setting 15,000+ broadcasts document the formation of a true American art form.
