The Roadhouse 711
[20 Oct 2018 | No Comment | 623 views]

Rather than focusing on new releases this week, I’ve focused on making this another “chair-dancing” edition. Kid Ramos, Kai Strauss, Sean Costello, Andy Santana, and Janiva Magness give you reason to move around. You might do that in your chair, you might grab someone close, you might get up and dance by yourself, but I think the hour is irresistably movable. It’ll make you want to dance, all while delivering another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.

The Roadhouse 710
[13 Oct 2018 | No Comment | 579 views]

There’s a big mix of stuff in this hour. I’ve got some great Chicago blues artists, some next generation blues rock, electric, acoustic – maybe just a full sense of blues today. Otis Rush, Sari Schorr, Seasick Steve, Eric Bibb, and Ben Poole. We can circle around it any way we want. What it comes down to is that this is another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 710th Roadhouse.

The Roadhouse 709
[6 Oct 2018 | No Comment | 515 views]

The rain around The Roadhouse Studios brings a little quieter tone, despite a riotous opening track. Jim Allchin, Boz Scaggs, Aki Kumar, Maria Muldaur, and Mike Morgan & The Crawl lead the way. It’s kind of hard to put a finger on a theme. But, regardless of the tone and mood, I know you’re going to find it to be, as always, another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 709th Roadhouse.

In this hour, I’ve got a variety of musical styles, a variety of tempos, even a variety of instrumentation. There’s a good chance it’ll make you quit paying attention to what’s going on around you. With Ana Popovic, Otis Grand, John Oates, Larkin Poe, and Mark Hummel, you know there’s something that will pull you out of the hustle-bustle. So, sit back and escape for another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 708th Roadhouse.

The Roadhouse 707
[22 Sep 2018 | No Comment | 825 views]

This hour of The Roadhouse features mostly upbeat blues. I also have a lot of outstanding guitar and a couple of songs with strong messages. Fred Chapellier & The Gents feat Dale Blade, Bruce Katz Band, Tom Hambridge, John Clifton, Big George Jackson take the lead. For all the variety, the important thing to remember is consistency. The 707th Roadhouse is consistently another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.

The Roadhouse 706
[15 Sep 2018 | No Comment | 517 views]

It’s another hour in The Roadhouse. Along with a big bunch of contemporary artists, I’ve got a 4-track set of more traditional post-war blues, and a closing set that’s three-quarters female. Most importantly, though, this is yet another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 706th Roadhouse.

The Roadhouse 705
[8 Sep 2018 | No Comment | 859 views]

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.
