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!
Time for the Blues
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!
Seriously, we're playing blues that's been piling up in John Porter's car?? Y'know Professor, we do have shelves in the station for our blues CDs! Well, anwyay, join us this week (12/2/12) as Time for the Blues features some new stuff and new-to-us stuff!
Join us this week as Time for the Blues (10/28/12) drags out the scariest blues songs we can find! Even if they're not THAT scary, you can always turn off the lights and do that flashlight thing under your chin for effect!
Every kid loves Halloween. And you’ve never met two bigger kids than Henry Cook and Professor Johnny Porter. We love just about everything about Halloween, costumes, parties, and especially candy. Except candy corn. For some reason, Henry absolutely HATES candy corn.
Check out Time for the Blues this week (9/30/12) for Muddy Water's London Sessions and some new stuff! OK--the deal with the picture of the lovely Yvette Mimieux as "Weena" from the 1960 sci-fi The Time Machine is that it's supposed to be 800,000 years in the future! REALLY? Look at her! There were no HAIR SALONS! Who did her makeup??!!
So Henry Cook and I finally got a chance to step out Sunday afternoon (9/9/12) and catch a great show. Li’l Ronnie sent us an invitation to his Harmonica Revue (hereafter referred to as “Harmonica Hooligans”) featuring The Grand Dukes and Mitch Kashmar, Kurt Crandall, and Bob Corritore. Counting Li’l Ronnie, that’s four – count ‘em – four masters of the harp on one stage.
Join us for some primary blues education and more silly movie stuff this week on Time for the Blues (8/26/12) as Henry and I will play nothing but "Classic" blues by the most legendary names! It's a great way to start being a blues fan!
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!
