Check out Time for the Blues this week (8/19/12) as we pull out an old radio trick, "Twofers" and wax nostalgic over our long list of seriously embarrassing cars! See this one? Anyway, we'll play two tracks from some great new releases by Li'l Ed and the Blues Imperials, Muddy with the Stones from '81 and Richmond's own Li'l Ronnie and the Grand Dukes! Don't miss it!
Time for the Blues
We cordially invite you to join us this week on Time for the Blues (8/5/2012) as we celebrate our 106th Anniversary! 106th you say? Well, you'll have to tune in to find out the secret of our longevity! Along with our usual bad jokes, we'll have great new blues including the latest from Rick Estrin and the Nightcats! Isn't that a cool cover?
Join us this week on Time for the Blues (7/15/12) as we practice our boating skills through the winding river of blues and discover some rare treats from Muddy Waters and other blues legends! We'll also feature tracks from the new release by our fave bass player/singer/songwriter from the Northwest, Lisa Mann!
Another return guest host on Time for the Blues (7/8/12) this week! John and I learn from Kevin Wiese that blues influences in fusion and high powered guitar (re:shredding) can be a blast! So like all bad movie sequels, Kevin comes back to exact his revenge! Unlike bad movie sequels, the music will be fantastic! Don't miss it!
Join us this week on Time for the Blues (6/24/12) as Henry and I pick through our blues library in search of “buried treasures!” No, we’re not copying a reality show--the stuff we’re picking is ABOUT picking! Guitars, get it? Yeah, not one of our best, but hey, the music will be great!
Sure...you can say this is a bit much to do a radio show--but John and I need all the protection we can get as we try to capture elusive blues! Join us for Time for the Blues this week (4/29/12) as we present more artists not normally associated with the blues! You won't believe it!
See this woman? OK, now you MUST hear this woman sing the blues! Listen to Time for the Blues this week (Sun 4/22/12) for one of the most powerful and soulful voices on the scene today, Janiva Magness! We'll hear tracks from her new CD, Stronger For It. We'll also sample a classic 1998 outing from the Jimmy Rogers' All Stars!
Join us this week for Time for the Blues (4/1/12) as we're featuring Peter Green, the originator of Fleetwood Mac! We'll also sample some of the later career of legendary guitarist Mike Bloomfield as well as some new stuff! For a treat, we'll dip into our mailbag here--your questions are way better than our answers!
