Peter Green, Mike Bloomfield and MORE! John Answers Questions! Henry Questions Answers!

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!

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year... for Guitarists.

Trade show people wanting to showcase their guitar goods have the NAMM conference for gear and mingling each winter... the rest of us, like yours truly, eagerly await Guitar Player magazine in our mailboxes each month. A late bloomer on the 6 string, I began reading it a couple of years before I began to play in the  late 1970s. And its still my periodical of choice. Unlike many institutions that seem to worsen with age, Guitar Player keeps getting better.

From Ghostbird to Gondwana

Greetings one and all. Now's the time to engage in the fun of this week's World Music Show Blog (3/24). The words that follow will attempt to entice you into tuning in to the show. You'll be thrilled with the use of adjectives and deft descriptions of the artists that will punctuate a strong and solid show. Plus, to titilate your ears, you can even hear a snippet of sound by clicking on the audio bar below. With this combination, you will hopefully set your clock radio alarm to remind you to tune in.

And away we go...

Mississippi Fred McDowell and Guitar Wizards!

What does Mississippi have to do with steak bones? No, we’re not talking springtime cook outs here--this is Time For The Blues not "Cookin’ With Henry". This week (3/25/12) we’ll feature an influential guitar master with a cool nickname and also more guitar wizards than you can shake a Stratocaster at. Bad grammar but great music, so find out what’s up our sleeve this week.

The St. Patrick’s Day Global-a-Go-Go

Alright, let's get this bit of stereotypical song stylings out of the way right now. Yes, this week's World Music Show (3/17) falls on St. Patrick's Day. But does this mean you can expect two hours of nothing but Irish music? Not that anything is wrong with that mode of thought. However, since the show aires at the ten o'clock nighttime hour, I figure that by now, you'd have your fill of all things Irish.
