This hour of The Roadhouse provides a way to prove the theory that blues fans are a defiant bunch. Through the best and the worst of times, we perservere. And, with a tough time upon us, the best way to do that is to step away and absorb yourself in great blues. The presence of Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne, Lucky Peterson, Benny Turner, Mannish Boys, and Chris James & Patrick Rynn tell you that this is gonna be a special hour. There’s nothing out there that we can’t forget about for an hour – an hour of the finest blues, period, case closed, done.
