Good Morning, Bluesologists! Another Tuesday Bluesday has rolled around and we’ve got some great programming for you today that starts with five hours of uninterrupted blues of all kinds!
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday lineup:
10:00 a.m. Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues: Various Artists
We’ve got some great blues material on this station, but this is our biggest, baddest Tuesday Bluesday feature every month where we shower you with all kinds of blues from artists like Delbert McClinton, B.B. King, Little Walter, Slim Harpo, Ry Cooder, Canned Heat, John Lee Hooker, The Animals, Albert King, Johnny Winter, Muddy Waters, Little Feat, Bonnie Raitt, The Yardbirds, Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones, Bobby “Blue” Bland, The Allman Brothers Band, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Elmore James, J.J. Cale, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Koko Taylor, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, James Cotton, Susan Tedeschi, Duane Allman, Marcia Ball, Roomful of Blues, Howlin’ Wolf, Linda Ronstadt, Tracy Nelson and more!
4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Cloud Nine by The Temptations
The only diversion from our blues programming today is for this great Album of The Week from 1969 where The Temps introduced us to a new genre called ‘psychedelic soul.’
7:00 p.m. Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at The Bluebird Lounge, Ft. Worth, Texas, September 30, 1979
We close out today’s Tuesday Bluesday programming with a guy who left us much too soon. Stevie Ray Vaughan was, without a doubt, one of the greatest masters of blues guitar and one dominant presence on stage. See for yourself tonight.
Tuesday Bluesday generally brings out a lot of listeners, but we’re not concerned with numbers here because this is a labor of musical love. We do not charge for you to listen…no ‘subscription’ required here. That means you never have to divulge your personal information or give us a credit card number. There are things you can’t do here, like build personal playlists but, then again, that was never what radio was about anyway. When we were kids, radio was about anxiously waiting for the next song and not knowing what it was going to be. That’s what you’ve got here.
