Most importantly, though, this is yet another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 706th Roadhouse.

We’re past Labor Day in the US and into unofficial fall – into the last third of 2018. And, once again, the vast majority of the music in this hour is from 2018. Trudy Lynn, Corey Dennison & Gerry Hundt, Bettye LaVette, Anthony Geraci, and The Nick Moss Band featuring Dennis Gruenling move us just a bit closer to the end of the calendar year. The weather’s starting to change, but it never changes that you’re in for another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 705th Roadhouse.

Elvin Bishop’s Big Fun Trio, Howlin’ Wolf, Aki Kumar, Mark Wenner’s Blues Warriors, and Rod Piazza get the featured slots in this hour of The Roadhouse. Most of the music is from Chicago or the West Coast, there’s quite a bit of harp, and even a few more instrumentals than usual. It all adds up, though, to a variety of blues that will have you nodding your head in agreement that it’s another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 704th Roadhouse.

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.
