The Roadhouse 736
[13 Apr 2019 | Comments Off on The Roadhouse 736 | 533 views]

This hour contains six great sets. They include some things I haven’t done in awhile: a long blues rock set, a set of next generation blues, and three Roadhouse debuts, as well. This is music you may not hear in other blues shows. But, isn’t that what it’s all about – another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard? It is, and it’s that and more – the 736th Roadhouse.

The Roadhouse 735
[6 Apr 2019 | Comments Off on The Roadhouse 735 | 526 views]

While The Roadhouse has been a lot of things over the years, there’s always been a variety of blues. And, that’s consistent in the next hour. I’ve got Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, Mavis Staples, Reese Wynans and Friends, Jonas Scott Cowan, and Rick Vito. Sometimes you do something special; sometimes the most special thing you can do is to be consistent week in and week out. And, for this week – there’s no doubt that it’s consistently another week of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 735th Roadhouse.

We’re finally rolling out of winter and into spring in The Roadhouse Studios. Like spring, this edition of The Roadhouse is about all things new. I’ve got new music from Kenny “Beedy Eyes” Smith, Tommy Castro & The Painkillers, Seth Walker, and Elles Bailey, and a great older track from The Mannish Boys. Let’s just say goodbye to winter and say hello to another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 734th Roadhouse.

It’s the usual in this hour of The Roadhouse. I’ve got new music from Benny Turner & Cash McCall, Sugar Ray Rayford, Nick Schnebelen, Jimmie Vaughan, and a great track from Sugar Ray & The Bluetones. It’s the usual tempo, the usual feel, and, of course, it’s the usual selection of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 733rd Roadhouse.

The Roadhouse 732
[16 Mar 2019 | Comments Off on The Roadhouse 732 | 523 views]

I’m departing from the usual format this week to talk a bit about my friend Dave Raven, who passed away on Thursday. I have a couple of stories to share that I think really display his approach to blues, podcasting, and life. And, I have a favor to ask. Then, we’ll carry on next week with a new edition of The Roadhouse.

The Roadhouse 731
[9 Mar 2019 | Comments Off on The Roadhouse 731 | 530 views]

While the music in the hour is primarily from 2019, I’ve also got a live set featuring some great female blues voices. I’ve got Willie Farmer, Smokey Wilson, Denise LaSalle, Lachy Doley, and Pee Wee Crayton in the upcoming hour. Where we’ve gone a bit slower in the show in recent months, you could probably consider this one a return to the long-time feel of the show. Regardless, you can definitely consider it to be another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 731st Roadhouse.

The Roadhouse 730
[2 Mar 2019 | Comments Off on The Roadhouse 730 | 628 views]

The next hour of The Roadhouse is an hour full of new blues including a set of next generation blues. I have three Roadhouse debuts. And, some old favorites come back around after a bit of an absence. Watermelon Slim, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, Gary Clark, Jr., Tedeschi Trucks Band, Bloodest Saxophone lead the hour. New blues, the next generation and some old friends – it sounds to me like another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 730th Roadhouse.
