It’s Tuesday Bluesday once again and we have got ourselves a blues trifecta going on today. All of the programming is blues related. It doesn’t get any better than that. Happy Valentines Day, folks! We LOVE da blues here.
Here’s today’s Tuesday Bluesday lineup:
9:00 a.m. The Best of Louisiana Blues: Various Artists
When it comes to music, Louisiana is culturally rich on many levels, including the blues. This is our newest blues EP, and you’ll hear familiar voices along with some you may not know, including Ray Charles, Lillian Glinn, Slim Harpo, Fats Domino, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Rodney Harris, Roosevelt Sykes, Shirley & Lee, Roy Brown, Papa Lightfoot, Guitar Slim, Annie Laurie, Fats Matthews, Big Joe Turner, Big Boy Myles, Little Walter, Mary Butler, Erline Harris, Marcia Ball, Allen Toussaint, Dr. John, Professor Longhair, The Neville Brothers, Irma Thomas, Dave Bartholomew and more!
4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Brother Johnny by Edgar Winter
We have the second airing of Edgar Winter’s 2023 Grammy winner for Best Contemporary Blues Album, a tribute to the great bluesman and high-energy guitarist Johnny Winter. Not to be missed.
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Stevie Ray Vaughan
SRV, as he is lovingly known, is probably best known as the front man for the blues trio Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, but he was more than that. His mainstream career spanned just seven years before his tragic death, but he is on the tip of everyone’s tongue in the blues world. He is one of the most influential artists of the blues genre, and one of its most revered guitarists.
Tuesday Bluesday is always a busy listening day in The Lounge. We’re crowded around the world here. Today will be no exception. Why not give us a listen today? You’ve got nothing to lose, and it won’t cost you a penny. Seriously. Ever.
