Time for the Blues
We hope you’ll join us this weekend (4/4/2015) for Time for the Blues as we do our best to scour the world for great sounds and turn over a few rocks for some bad jokes. Henry and I have plenty of both for your listening pleasure and can’t wait to bring them out for our late night party.
I hope you will join us this week (3/28/15) on Time for the Blues, as Henry and I are planning a very special show featuring a few friends and a number of other Virginia artists we only know through their music. This week we’re going around the world and down the street to find you some amazing blues.
As hosts for Time for the Blues, John Porter and I are always listening for interesting stories of the blues! Last Friday (3/19), Fresh Air played an interview from 1987 with Samuel Charters, the blues and jazz historian who helped ignite the blues revival of the 1950s and ‘60s. Charters made field recordings of forgotten and previously undiscovered performers. He also wrote two books. He died Wednesday (3/18/15); he was 85.
We hope you’ll join us this week (3/21/15) on Time for the Blues as Henry and I are kicking up the funk factor to 11. You know it’s going to be fun; you just don’t have any idea how much fun it’s going to be. You better be ready and have your dancing shoes handy because we’re pulling out all the stops.
We hope you’ll join us this week (3/7/15) on Time for the Blues as Henry and I are cooking up a little mischief, some fun, and a whole mess of blues. We’re going around the world looking for some of the best sounds around. You won’t want to miss it.
We hope you’ll join us this week (2/28/15) on Time for the Blues as Henry and I have a couple of surprises for you. It’s been cold outside long enough so we’re going to heat things up with some of the best blues we can get and pipe them directly to you.
We hope you will join us this week (2/14/15) for a very special edition of Time for the Blues as we celebrate the holiday in a way that only we can. Let all the others serenade you with sappy love songs, we’re going to offer up some tunes with a little edge.
We hope you’ll join us this week (1/10/15) on Time for the Blues because Henry and I have cooked up something very special for you. Alongside of our normal great music and bad jokes, we’re going to have a little company stop by for a chat.
We hope you’ll stay up late with us this Saturday (12/20/14) at 11:00 p.m. for Time for the Blues, because we’ve got the kind of blues that will get you through the stressful times and maybe put a smile on your face and make you want to wiggle on the dance floor! (If you don’t have a dance floor, then wiggle in the kitchen a little bit...) And if you miss us this week, then be sure to catch us again on Christmas Night at 9:00 – more on that later!
