Time for the Blues
Join us the week (4/7/13) as Time for the Blues features legendary guitarists--tracks from the new Jimi Hendrix release as well as a newly remastered version of Albert King's late 60's Stax classic "Born Under a Bad Sign" -- isn't that a cool cover? These tracks sound as fresh as if they were recorded yesterday! We'll also check out the new CD by Andy Poxon!
As if you couldn't tell this was coming! Join us this week (3/31/13) as Time for the Blues does what it basically does EVERY week, stretch another silly premise (aka Jumping the Shark) but also playing really cool blues!
We may be on late, but when you hear tracks from the new CD from Ben Harper wih Charlie Musselwhite on Time for the Blues this week (3/3/13), your'e going to want to GET UP! This collaboration is one of the best new blues releases of the year (so far) and has hit #1 on the Billboard Blues Charts! Read on...and don't miss this show!
Hope you’re planning to stay up late with us as Henry Cook and I have some great blues coming your way on Time for the Blues this week (2/24/13) on WCVE Public Radio. We’ve got a couple of old favorites, and some new players – well new for us – and a bunch of bad jokes lined up, but it won’t mean a thing if you’re not there.
Join us for the next TWO weeks (1/6/13 & 1/13/13) as Time for the Blues presents a two-part special on the blues roots of the Rolling Stones as they celebrate 50 years of music history! Host and Producer Paul Ingles digs deep to relate how the blues started the group and how they never left it behind! Read on for a full description!
Join us this week (12/30/12) as Time for the Blues rings in the New Year early! We'll have some cool New Year's blues tracks (and they aren't easy to find!) and Henry might wax nostalgic about past New Year's Eves! Believe me, I'll do my best to stop him! We'll also have an announcement for special shows in January!
Join us this week (12/23/12) as Time for the Blues brings you “Christmas Blues 2012” with some never-before-played (on this show, anyway) blues-themed songs by some of the greats! It can’t be the holiday season without the blues you get fighting the traffic and the lines in the stores! If you're reading this that means we’re still here!--if you’re not, well, never mind!
Join us this week (12/9/12) as Time for the Blues features all live performances by blues greats! We certainly can't fit them all in the studio (wouldn't that be cool!), but you'll love the live recordings just as well! Some of the best will come from this great compilation from the legendary PBS series Austin City Limits!
