We hope you will join us this week (2/14/15) for a very special edition of Time for the Blues as we celebrate the holiday in a way that only we can. Let all the others serenade you with sappy love songs, we’re going to offer up some tunes with a little edge.
We hope you’ll join us this week (1/10/15) on Time for the Blues because Henry and I have cooked up something very special for you. Alongside of our normal great music and bad jokes, we’re going to have a little company stop by for a chat.
We hope you’ll stay up late with us this Saturday (12/20/14) at 11:00 p.m. for Time for the Blues, because we’ve got the kind of blues that will get you through the stressful times and maybe put a smile on your face and make you want to wiggle on the dance floor! (If you don’t have a dance floor, then wiggle in the kitchen a little bit...) And if you miss us this week, then be sure to catch us again on Christmas Night at 9:00 – more on that later!
Make sure you join us this week (12/6/14) on Time for fhe Blues as Henry Cook and I heat up the late night with some very cool blues. We’ve got all sorts of temptations and it’s the perfect time to indulge. After all, no one’s watching!
It was ten years ago this month that the world lost one of its best bluesmen, the legendary Son Seals. Seals was the epitome of cool and would often show up unannounced at clubs. You could feel the whispers that maybe tonight the man with the black body guitar would be here to set the club on fire.
It might take you a couple of days to recover from eating too much turkey on Thanksgiving and maybe shopping too much on Black Friday and Shop Local Saturday, but you should be recovered enough to tune into Time for the Blues this Saturday (11/29/14). If we don’t get you moving, you might want to check your pulse.
Henry and I hope that you’ll join us this weekend (11/15/14) on Time for the Blues because this is one of those shows that people are going to be talking about for a long time. And we mean in a good way, not the way that people usually talk about us. Relax, kick back, and turn the volume way up (Henry says make sure your dial goes up to 11) and you just might find out we’re a great way to end a Saturday night!
Make sure you join us this week (11/8/14) on Time for the Blues as Henry Cook and I are pulling out all the stops for the last couple of months of 2014. Every song is a killer and you won’t want to miss a single one!
