Escape the holidays with the too-much-fantastic-food coma, the stare-blankly-at-the-television-sports coma, and the mindless-shopping-for-whatever-this-store-has-on-sale blues, and enjoy some real blues with Time For the Blues this Saurday (11/30/13) starting at 11 p.m. on 88.9 WCVE. Henry Cook and I are serving up a heaping helping of great tunes, bad jokes, and more than one surprise. Goes great with the leftover turkey sandwich!
Time for the Blues
This week on Time For The Blues (11/23/13), Henry and I are cooking up a tasty little late-night dessert and serving up some hot tunes just for you. So kick back in your favorite chair and turn up the headphones and listen to the music–you just might want to ignore the silly jokes.
John and I invite you to join us this week (11/9/13) as Time for the Blues returns to “Chicago Blues: A Living History,” incredible remakes of classic blues from all the greats! Unlike the old “sold-on-TV-fake-rock-hits-LPs” from the ‘70s, these remakes are the real deal! We’ll also find out what Steve Miller was up to when he returned to his blues roots in 2010!
We're going back to our Wish List on Time for the Blues this week (11/2/13) and share more incredible blues with you that we just couldn't play from the first Wish List show! For example, we'll feature Johnny Winter classics from a remastered set of 2 albums he did in the late 70's that we just had to have! Come along and hear if our blues wish list is anything like yours!
Join us this week (9/21/13) as John and I share our blues wish list with you on Time for the Blues! Not only will you hear tracks from one of Buddy Guy's best,"Living Proof" but also some amazing performances that we're sure you'll want on YOUR wish list! Here's hoping that all your wishes come true...
Join us this week (9/14/13) as Time for the Blues brings out new stuff from Smokin' Joe Kubek & Bnois King and we're also featuring the legendary Delbert McClinton from a classsic 1997 CD! We've been finding so much great stuff lately that we can't contain ourselves! Another reminder--we're now on Saturdays at 11:00 p.m. so don't miss the fun!
This week (8/31/13) starts a new chapter in Time For the Blues! We will now be heard at the earlier time of 11:00 p.m. and we hope you will tune in to find out what all the fuss is about. We promise we’ll bring the same great music and the same bad jokes, just now at a new time.
Join us this week (8/11/13) as we celebrate the 7th Anniversary of Time for the Blues! We're still shaking our heads in disbelief but as long as we're still here, come along for the ride! It all started in a 5,000 watt station in Fresno, California.....
