7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Robert Johnson NEW!

Robert Johnson only lived to the ripe old age of 27. He is a bona fide member of the 27 Club, and his musical recording career lasted a grand total of seven months. However, his recordings from 1936 and 1937 are historic and expose a combination of songwriting, singing and guitar playing that has influenced generations of blues musicians. Johnson is known as the master of the Delta Blues and one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame describes Robert Johnson as “the first ever rock star.”

Tuesday Bluesday is always a full house, folks, and today is no exception! Join your global friends as we focus on the blues this fine Tuesday. We’re totally free 24/7. There are no surprises. And we don’t employ overly-chatty DJ’s. We’re all about the music.

It’s Another Fine Tuesday Bluesday With Our ‘Best of Chicago Blues’ EP, Our AOW, and B. B. King In the Spotlight, November 8, 2022

Blues lovers, it is your day as we start it off with our ‘Best of Chicago Blues’ EP and close it out with B. B. King. In between, it’s our Album of The Week.

We are the House of Blues every Tuesday and here’s today’s lineup:

10:00 a.m. The Best of Chicago Blues: Various Artists

There’s nothing like Chicago for blues and this multi-artist EP brings you Otis Rush, Willie Dixon, Albert King, Muddy Waters, Little Water, Bo Diddley, Koko Taylor, Lowell Fulson, Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Guy, Magic Slim, Sonny Boy Williamson, Son Seals, James Cotton, Paul Butterfield, Elmore James, Jimmy Reed, Otis Spann and more!

4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Sweet Harmony by Maria Muldaur

Technically, this album fits just fine on a Tuesday Bluesday since Maria Muldaur refuses to be defined by any single genre of music and has successfully combined a bit of blues, jazz and folk in this fine album. See for yourself this afternoon.

7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of B. B. King

B. B. King was a pioneer who defined the blues for a worldwide audience. As a guitar innovator, King developed an intricate style of blues solo playing based on fluid string bending, shimmering vibrato, and staccato picking with the help of the most important woman in his life, Lucille. This style would inspire future blues guitarists, and it’s here tonight at 7:00 p.m. EST.

It’s always a full house on Tuesday Bluesdays and we’ve got listeners from Greece, Italy, France, the UK, Norway, Denmark, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Russian Federation, Faroe Islands, Australia, Texas, California and New York this morning. Join our international community!

7:00 p.m. Albert Collins Live at The Fillmore, San Francisco, CA, December 26-28, 1969

Some ‘live’ Albert Collins recorded over a three-day stretch at one great venue, The Fillmore West. We haven’t heard this one for a while and it jumped right out. We have been remiss. Enjoy.

Here I go again: Why not join our listeners? There’s absolutely no cost to you. We are not a corporate entity, nor do we have the desire to become one. We just play music. We are not all things to all people. We do not play rap. And if we did, we certainly would not be playing anything that came out of Ye’s mouth. We do not play head-banging hard rock. We do not play hip-hop or disco. But we play just about everything else.

It’s Tuesday Bluesday With Our Big, Bad Blues EP and Some ‘Live’ Stevie Ray Vaughan On The Docket, September 27, 2022

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.

This is the second airing of this week’s AOW, Bobbie Gentry’s ambitious concept album about life growing up in Chickasaw County, Mississippi. In truth, Bobbie Gentry didn’t want to sing. She wanted to write songs for other people and remain in the background. Her songwriting prowess is fully on show here, as is her sultry, bluesy voice.

We’ve got Chile, the Netherlands, the UK, Greece, Spain, Portugal, France, Russian Federation, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, and many points beyond already tuned in this morning. Why not join them?

On Sunday Bobbie Gentry Makes a Return Visit, and Then It’s Volume Two of Our Sixties Rotation, May 22, 2022

Good Morning, Sixties Music Lovers! This is your day as Bobbie Gentry makes a return engagement with her innovative album, The Delta Sweete, and we bring on volume two of the Sixties Rotation.

Here’s your musical landscape for today:

11:00 a.m. Album of The Week: The Delta Sweete by Bobbie Gentry NEW!

We bring back Bobbie Gentry this week with her ambitious concept album, The Delta Sweete, a musical projection of life in her ancestral home of Chickasaw County, Mississippi. She went into the studio in 1967, and the album was released in 1968. The Beatles had already released their amazingly epic concept album, Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band, and other artists joined in as well, including The Moody Blues, The Kinks, and The Beach Boys, to name a few. Frank Sinatra even did it in the 50s. Few understand how talented Bobbie Gentry truly was because she remained low key throughout her short career. We hope you enjoy this one.

3:00 p.m. The Sixties Rotation: Volume Two

The second portion of our Sixties obsession is upon us for another month. This EP covers mostly the mid-to-late sixties. I say mostly because I know how I am and I’m sure some early sixties stuff has slipped in. Nevertheless, you’ll hear The Mamas & The Papas, Simon & Garfunkel, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead, Buffalo Springfield, Sly & The Family Stone, The Temptations, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Roy Orbison, The Yardbirds, The Animals, Linda Ronstadt, Chuck Berry, James Brown, Blind Faith, The Spencer Davis Group, The Box Tops, Elvis Presley, The Doors, Marvin Gaye, Wilson Pickett, The Band, Bob Dylan, Judy Collins, The Ronettes, The Kinks, Jimmy Cliff, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Donovan, B.B. King, The Velvet Underground, Led Zeppelin, and many more!

We’re on fire this morning with listeners from Germany, the UK, The Netherlands, Australia, Greece, France, Spain, Portugal, Faroe Islands, Peru, Mexico, Brazil, and let’s toss in Dallas, Texas; Natick, Massachusetts, Long Island, and points beyond! What are you waiting for?
