With four inches of new snow around The Little Blue House on the Wetlands, it’s a good day to stay inside and stay warm with some great blues. I’ve got Johnny Tucker, Louis “Gearshifter” Youngblood, Miss Freddye, Victor Wainwright & The Train, and Jim Riley’s Blues Foundation in the hour. That’s just part of the hour – the kindling, if you will, to stoke a hot blues fire into another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 681st Roadhouse.

This hour of The Roadhouse stays pretty much straight down the middle with contemporary blues, with the exception of one set. I’ve got John Mayall, Harrison Kennedy, Chris Smither, a little advance taste of Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite, and new music from Ian Siegal. With a couple of tracks of world blues in the middle, I’ve definitely got another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 680th hour of The Roadhouse.

It’s back to the norm this week after a special anniversary review of show openers. Of course, the norm is to mix up blues styles and push out a lot of new blues releases. Sue Foley, Danielle Nicole, Mud Morganfield, John Mayall, and Teresa James & The Rhythm Tramps definitely support that approach. Of the 15 tracks in the hour, 12 are from 2018. So, it looks from here like another fun hour of new variety – a variety of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 678th Roadhouse.
