The Roadhouse 618
[31 Dec 2016 | No Comment | 574 views]

We’re building a strong hour of blues in this edition of The Roadhouse. Jack Mack & the Heart Attack Horns, Lucky Peterson, Kenny Neal, Moreland & Arbuckle, and The Mighty Mojo Prophets provide the bricks, with another seven or eight artists providing the mortar. All told, it takes a lot of hands to construct the hour, but when it’s done, you end up with another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 618th Roadhouse.

[24 Dec 2016 | No Comment | 543 views]

We’re down to two Roadhouse hours left in 2016. What’s up in the 51st hour of the year? The Rolling Stones, JW-Jones, Michael Burks, David Bromberg Band, and The Blind Boys of Alabama. If it’s cold where you live, this one will keep you warm. If it’s warm, I think you’ll find this to be a very cool hour. In any case, you know it’s going to be another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 617th Roadhouse.

Grab a cup of eggnog and make yourself comfortable. I’ve got the third holiday edition of The Roadhouse for 2016 queued up and ready for your celebration. Jack DeKeyser, Cedell Davis, Jack Mack & The Heart Attack Horns, Wee Willie Walker & The Greaseland All Stars, and Keb’ Mo’ fill the hour.

It’s the first holiday edition of The Roadhouse for 2016. With a holiday track in every set, I’ve also got Sugar Ray & The Bluetones, The Rolling Stones, Chuck Leavell, Rory Block, and Teresa James & the Rhythm Tramps in an hour that contains a set focused on the great Bukka White and, all around, has a great mix of new music and old.

Roadhouse 613
[26 Nov 2016 | No Comment | 371 views]

It’s a holiday weekend in the US - that means a Roadhouse Rewind. From 2010, I hope you’ll enjoy Roadhouse 300. I’ll be back next week to start the holiday season in the The Roadhouse.

A big thanks to all who have made the 300th Roadhouse possible – listeners, labels and artists. This milestone edition stretches things out with fewer songs but plus-size creativity. The Chris O’Leary Band, Mel Brown, Lance Lopez, Lucky Peterson, and Buddy Guy provide more than enough propulsion to move through the hour with toes tappin’, hands slappin’, and full-on chair-dancin’. There’s another hour of the finest blues you never heard in the 300th Roadhouse.

I got out the prism, again, in this hour. We go from jump blues to acoustic, some contemporary blues, and a tribute track by Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings. Bobby Rush, Mike Zito, Big Head Blues Club, The Devil Makes Three, and Trudy Lynn. It is a spectrum of blues in this hour and certainly a spectrum of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 612th Roadhouse Podcast.
