I have an hour ahead that you may find to be just a little different than the usual in The Roadhouse. Aside from a few upbeat tracks, I’ve also got quite a bit more mid-tempo and acoustic blues than usual. Fruteland Jackson, Jontavious Willis, Colin Linden & Luther Dickinson, Seth Walker, and William Clarke send us off in a slightly different direction than we normally take. One thing is definitely the same, though – it’s another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 746th Roadhouse.

In the next hour of The Roadhouse, we pay tribute to the late Dr. John with several tracks spanning his career. I do have some other new music around those tracks, as well. Peter Frampton Band, Duke Robillard, Keb’ Mo’, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, and Southern Avenue all contribute to the cause. We’re looking to the current and future state of the blues and remembering Dr. John. That makes for great promise, as always, to be another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 744th Roadhouse.
