A Baker's Dozen Of Blues

A Baker’s Dozen Of Blues

A great week of ‘double entendre’ blues, we just wanna thank all of ya for tuning in repeatedly to the show. Guess it was so good ya had to have it twice. Remember that because of the depth and popularity of such songs we will be airing at least one two-hour special on the ‘dirty blues’ coming up shortly. Check the web page and Mojowax radio for details.

This week we say congrats to Niecie for taking the #1 spot on our list. Hard working lady gets it done day after day and look for her on the road and tell her ya heard her on A Baker’s Dozen of Blues.

We have two debuts on the play list, Hard Garden and Lisa Biales. So these two couldn’t be more different in terms of style and sound, and that’s what makes the blues so wonderful– that big tent I always refer too is alive and well.

A Baker’s Dozen of Blues: March 31, 2014

A Baker's Dozen Of Blues

A Baker’s Dozen Of Blues

A somewhat quieter week as we prepare to head to Tampa Bay for the Tampa Bay Blues Festival, April 11. 12 & 13th.  The festival will be featuring a splendid line up of artists and a super VIP package — plus great after parties including a B-3 special Friday night.

This week we see the hard working Ori Naftaly Band in the #1 spot with their ‘Happy for Good’ release. We are Happy for them as they have had their work visa extended to the end of the year and that is Good.

New additions to the Baker’s Dozen are Canadian artist Kat Danser, and Floridian Damon Fowler, both bring exceptional skills to the Blues world and are worthy of your support.

Joining our Chef Suggestion section are Soul Stack and Johnny Drummer, ya gotta check these two out, they are certainly keeping them blues alive n well!

Hot Nuts & Lollypops

Hot Nuts & Lollypops

Our ‘Amuse Bouche’ section is particularly tasty this week, tho’ it might get a bit salty for some! It’s examining a traditional style of blues called ‘dirty blues’.  These are the radio acceptable versions of many of these songs, the real deal dirty L.A.M.F. can be found by searching for them. From a scratchy recording from Bessie Smith, to a full blown modern-day song from Cafe R&B we cover it with a wide berth. In fact we have had so much fun with this (go figure) that we will be  programming a full-blown (ahem) 2 hour show to be aired on Mojo Wax radio very shortly.

Me & Walter in better days.
