Blues Lovers, we’ve got a great day on tap in The Mermaid Lounge. In between that great stream, we’ve got great blues programming.
This is your Thursday blues line-up:
11:00 a.m. Tedeschi Trucks Band Live at Red Rocks Amphitheater, August 20, 2012 NEW!
We have so much music still to add, but we were remiss in not putting Tedeschi-Trucks in before this. Blues Week was the perfect time to escalate our actions here, and we have. Today is our very first Tedeschi Trucks live performance and today they join the standard rotation.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Born Under a Bad Sign by Albert King
No lie: I actually pulled this out of a hat because I couldn’t decide which one would be Album of The Week for Blues Week. I’m glad it was this one. You’re running out of time if you haven’t listened in! Our final airing will be Saturday.
7:00 p.m. Muddy Waters: The Johnny Winter Sessions 1976-1981 NEW!
“Well, one of the best things is workin’ with Muddy.” – Johnny WinterJohnny Winter answering questions about playing the blues.
Yeah, baby. Muddy Waters and Johnny Winter, one of the most underrated blues guitarists on the planet. Except here in The Mermaid Lounge. Muddy knew it. And so did many other blues guys. Today you get to hear it.
Great day to become a #BecomeUngovernable Radio fan, people. It doesn’t cost you a penny. No shit. No lie. We’re free and we do this because we love music.
