Time for the Blues

The Professor’s Picks: Lawrence Olds Band; David Michael Miller; Slam Allen; Shaun Murphy

Is it just me, or does this year seem like it’s flying by? Henry and I have been up to our eyeballs in great music and it’s still coming in. Thanks goodness. That means we have all sorts of great new things to share with you and we’re on the prowl for even more. Thanks for listening to Time For The Blues, and let’s get to this month’s releases.

The Professor’s Picks: Scott Ellison; Papermoon Gypsys; Josh Garrett; Deb Ryder

Henry and I wish we could bring you the blues 24/7, but since that’s not possible we’re going to try and keep you up on some of the best CDs we receive and play. You know we love discovering new artists and playing them for you, but it’s often difficult to get them much air play, so this is one way we can alert you to some great new releases.

B.B.’s Blues: A B.B. King Appreciation!

A very sad day in the blues world...please join us in appreciation and rememberence of the legendary B.B. King with special airings of “B.B.’s Blues: A B.B. King Appreciation” tonight at 7:00 p.m. on Jazz with Peter Solomon and again tomorrow (5/16) on Time for the Blues at 11:00 p.m. Another programming note: Fresh Air will feature Terry Gross’s 1996 interview with B. B. this afternoon at 3:00 p.m.

The Professor’s Picks: Southside; True & Blue

Welcome to The Professor’s Picks, a new column designed to supplement Time for the Blues. Henry and I are always on the lookout for new material and are fortunate to receive a number of CDs from studios, publicists, and friends of the show. And once in a while, we even go out and buy some as well. Truth is, even with trying to bring 14 songs a week to the show, we run out of time and don’t always get around to playing all of the songs we want to play.
