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??!!
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!
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!
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!
Seriously--Love Sculpture? The name may be strange, but the blues are hot! Join us this week on Time for the Blues (3/18/12) as we hear tracks from this Brit blues trio fronted by the legendary Dave Edmunds! We'll also sample the amazing Ana Popovic's latest disc and hear more from the Goldwax Story!
We've said it before and we'll say it again! We HATE tribute shows! We want our legends to stay forever! But we must pay tribute to Etta, Hubert and Johhny Otis this week on Time for the Blues (2/19/12) and we hope you'll join us!
