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!

There were no HAIR SALONS! Who did her makeup??!!

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!

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!
