Time for the Blues
Henry and I hope you will join us this week (5/5/13) on Time For The Blues as we’ve prepared one of those shows that will live in infamy! We’re pulling out all the stops and bringing you the best blues in our price range, and we’ve blown our whole month’s budget on this show. Well, maybe not, but we have new James Cotton and Albert Castiglia's incredible guitar!
Our friend Bob Corritore is at it again! This superb harp player, radio host and all-around purveyor of the blues has teamed up with another of our favorites, guitarist John Primer for a rollickin' new CD "Knockin' Around These Blues" and you can hear tracks from it on Time for the Blues this week (4/28/13)!
Elvis Unleaded? What's up with that? Check out Time for the Blues this week (4/21/13) as we reveal the mystery behind this cool CD and check out more tracks from Albert King's "Born Under a Bad Sign Remastered" as well as some way cool crossovers! Don't you just love quirky, imaginative CD premises like this?
Time for the Blues fans--how about some free blues? Yes--I said FREE! Our friends at Alligator Records are offering a 17 song sampler for Public Radio Music Month that’s free to download! Read on for the links and comment back to us your favorite tracks and we’ll feature them on future shows and give you credit!
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.
