It’s almost all new music, too, so, as you might guess – it’s another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 655th Roadhouse.

It’s all about the roots in this hour of The Roahdouse. They hold up the blues and provide a foundation for other musical genres, as well. Wee Willie Walker & The Anthony Paule Soul Orchestra, Lara Hope & The Ark-Tones, Pillie Bolling, Bull City Red, and Dani Wilde help lead you through the hour. About half the hour is focused on roots from one tree or another, but it’s certainly another full hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 653rd Roadhouse.

There’s strength in the blues in the hour ahead and it’s certainly another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 651st Roadhouse.
