Buddy Guy audio tour includes stop at Chicago Blues Festival

A multimedia podcast about Chicago blues location narrated by Buddy Guy has been downloaded nearly 100,000 times, but somehow just came to my attention. The tie-in here is that one of those locations is the Chicago Blues Festival, the subject of one of the series' 22 chapters.

The whole project is first class, one of the best multimedia presentations I've ever seen. The idea is that you would put it on your photo-enabled MP3 player and listen to it while visiting the sites, but it works almost as well from the comfort of an easy chair. The tour is available for viewing at a website or for download as a podcast. Highly recommended.
