Good Morning, Bluesologists! We are here with another great Tuesday Bluesday with some great programming for y’all. We kick it off at 11:00 a.m. this morning, so be there or be square!
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of B. B. King
For more than half a century, B.B. King defined the blues for a global audience. This singer, songwriter and record producer was a guitar innovator, whose solos used a combination of fluid string bending, shimmering vibrato, and and staccato picking. Today, we put him in the spotlight.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: In The Midnight Hour & Other Hits by Wilson Pickett
The wicked one is back today for a second airing. Wilson Pickett was a big part of defining American soul music, placing 50 songs on the charts during his career. Some of the best are here today.
7:00 p.m. The Allman Brothers Band Play All Night Long, Live at The Beacon Theatre, New York, March 1992
This was the first multi-night stand the Allman Brothers played at the great Beacon Theatre in New York.
Tuesday Bluesday is always a great day to tune us in. In between all this great blues music, we have some great Open Stream with rock, rock n’ roll, R & B, gospel, soul, folk, cajun-zydeco, calypso and other world music.
