We’re here for blues and you won’t be disappointed. I open with a title that reminds me of traditional radio and throw in a blues lesson in recycling. Toronzo Cannon, Vaneese Thomas, Mike Andersen, Keb’ Mo’, and Giles Robson line up with another Roadhouse debut in the hour ahead. It’s possible that we’ve tapped into the new radio signal, but it’s certain that it once again delivers another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 757th Roadhouse.

Horns, hard blues, new blues, bands from Providence to Sydney, and a Roadhouse debut from an album with a lot of great guest artists – that’s the hour ahead in The Roadhouse. I think we move pretty easily from one track to the next, one set to the next, and right on through our allotted weekly time. Terry Hanck, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Mike Zito, Ash Grunwald, and The Teskey Brothers lay it down to create another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 756th Roadhouse.

Over the years, I’ve built a list of some of my favorite Roadhouse artists. This week, like some cosmic convergence, I’ve got what might be the biggest collection of Roadhouse favorites of any Roadhouse show. Cash Box Kings, Coco Montoya, Delbert McClinton, Janiva Magness, Doug MacLeod – you’ve heard many of those names multiple times over the years. And, along with nine other artists, many of whom are also constants in the show, I’m really excited about the hour ahead. It’s another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – from some of my favorite artists in The Roadhouse.

I’ve got a nice variety of blues in the hour – uptempo, a little slower, blues rock, contemporary blues, and a set of really interesting acoustic blues. I’ve also got music from an upcoming release and yet another Roadhouse debut. The Kokomo Kings, Heather Newman, Brownie McGhee & Sonny Terry, Colby James, and The Teskey Brothers fill out the hour, putting in place the framework for what I’m sure you’ll agree is another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 752nd Roadhouse.
