The bain of commercial music radio nowadays is the limited number songs forced in repetiton ad nauseum. No finesse. No sense of season. No poetry in programming. To borrow a phrase, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist (or a PH.d in music) to understand that music is created with a certain mindset--in a certain time, space, intent and emotion. Its the reason we play Christmas carols in December--not August.
Another return guest host on Time for the Blues (7/8/12) this week! John and I learn from Kevin Wiese that blues influences in fusion and high powered guitar (re:shredding) can be a blast! So like all bad movie sequels, Kevin comes back to exact his revenge! Unlike bad movie sequels, the music will be fantastic! Don't miss it!
Going from the unofficial start of summer with Memorial Day... we time travel full tilt into Summer with The 4th!
Back when life was simpler and Mom was able to cook, I remember a holiday feast of barbecued spare ribs she prepared with onions/garlic/tomato sauce in the kitchen before I grilled them in the back yard.

I know it's sweltering hot and that to spend time reading text on a piping hot computer screen or smartphone underneath the blazing sun and humidity feels like you're wading through a bowl of hot pudding inside a convection oven is not your idea of fun. So I'll keep it brief, unlike the previous sentance which should win an award for longest run-on at a future Webby Award show.
Join us this week on Time for the Blues (6/24/12) as Henry and I pick through our blues library in search of “buried treasures!” No, we’re not copying a reality show--the stuff we’re picking is ABOUT picking! Guitars, get it? Yeah, not one of our best, but hey, the music will be great!
