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.
