The Roadhouse 701

This hour might just define “blues crazy.” Cash Box Kings, Mike Zito, Elvin Bishop, Carey Bell, and The 44s help to lay down a groove like few we’ve had in the 700 hours before. I could paint it a whole bunch of different ways, but it comes down to this – this hour is fun. […]

This hour might just define “blues crazy.” Cash Box Kings, Mike Zito, Elvin Bishop, Carey Bell, and The 44s help to lay down a groove like few we’ve had in the 700 hours before. I could paint it a whole bunch of different ways, but it comes down to this – this hour is fun. And, because it’s another hour of The Roadhouse, you know it’s another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.

The Roadhouse 700
[4 Aug 2018 | No Comment | 308 views]

This week we note 700 shows, 700 hours and roughly 9100 tracks. It does seem just a little ways from 2005. But we do roll on with an hour of great new blues, including Sister Mercy, Buddy Guy, Joe Bonamassa, Bruce Katz Band, and one for my fellow blues presenter Dave Raven. It’s the 700th hour of The Roadhouse but, really, it’s just another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.

This week’s edition of The Roadhouse is a Roadhouse Rewind from 2013. I’ll be back next week with a new edition.

This edition of The Roadhouse is hotter than July, chock full of artists who will keep the temperature high. King King, Greg Nagy, Gina Sicilia, Eddie Taylor, and Kara Grainger shimmer in the heat like an oasis mirage. Protect yourself from the heat or dive right in. You’re in for a hot, hot hour of blues and another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 438th Roadhouse.

The Roadhouse 697

I’m glad to be with you for another hour, another week, deep into year fourteen of The Roadhouse. This week, I’ve got Johnny Sansone, Victor Wainwright & The Train, Rory Block, Brooks Williams, and The Bruce Katz Band. I’ve got a little chit-chat in between. And, I’ve got a little shelter from a rainy Saturday in July in The Roadhouse. But shades or slicker makes no difference. It’s another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 697th Roadhouse.

The Roadhouse 696
[7 Jul 2018 | No Comment | 485 views]

For the 696th week, I’ll mix up new blues and old to go with the mix of new and old listeners. That includes Dave Hole, Carey Bell, Crystal Shawanda, JP Soars, and Willie “Big Eyes” Smith. New or old, listener or track – I don’t think it really makes a difference because, as always, the hour ahead is another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.

Right now is the hour to sit back, crank it up, and just let the blues wash over you. I’ve got Little Freddie King, Blind Willie McTell, Fantastic Negrito, Original Chicago Blues Allstars, and Duke Robillard ahead. I’m going young and old in consecutive sets to explore where we’ve been and where we’re going – roots of the blues and the next generation. All in all, right now is another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 695th Roadhouse.
