Before the summer slips away into the fall, it’s time to check out some of the most recent releases that have hit my desk. We’re expecting a big shipment for the fall, so be sure to head back here soon, and in the meantime, here are a few things you’ll be hearing on Time For The Blues in the near future.
Time for the Blues
We hope you will join us this week (8/15/15) on Time for the Blues as Henry and I are celebrating our 9th Anniversary on the air! That’s right, the little show that we thought might make it six weeks has somehow stuck around for nine years of great music and really bad jokes! (Important note about Kenny Wayne Shepherd show Friday 8/14 below!)
We hope you will join us this week (8/1/15) on Time for the Blues as Henry and I try to combat the rising summer temperatures with some very cool music. Think about it, the word “blues” even sounds cool – it’s the best way to wind down a busy hot Saturday.
We hope you’ll join us this week (7/25/15) on Time for the Blues as Henry and I are working hard on a special show with some good new stuff, some fine older stuff, a guy we’ve never played before, and some that feature a genuine member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
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.
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.
We hope you’ll join us this week (6/13/15) for a very special edition of Time for the Blues. I know that sounds like an advertisement for just about every cheesy 80’s sitcom, but in our case it’s absolutely true. Except for the cheesy part, we’re going to leave that out in the lobby.
Every year in preparation for the International Blues Challenge held in Memphis, local blues societies hold their own challenge qualifying the best groups, solo or duo acts, and even young people to represent the society at the big showdown. Winning in Memphis can change a performer’s life by opening doors to the best clubs and even a chance to record for a major label.
