Duane Allman

This week's blues show, Saturday, August 15th at 11pm, starts off with songs by Derek & the Dominos followed by Duane Allman and Delbert McClinton.  The second set features music from the Tedeshi Trucks Band, the Goshorn Brothers, Marc Broussard, and an instrumental by Peter Frampton.  And the program ends with songs by local guitarist Noah Wotherspoon, Coco Montoya, Long John Baldry, and Ry Cooder.

(Please note that this program was supposed to air on August 8th but was postponed due to a technical glitch.)

Chicago bluesman Otis Rush passed away last Saturday, September 29th.  In his honor during my blues show on Saturday, October 6th, at 11pm, you'll hear some of the music he recorded over his long career.

The one-hour special begins with his first single, "I Can't Quit You Baby," which he recorded in 1956.  You'll also hear other songs from his Cobra recordings as well as songs from his albums, "Cold Day in Hell," "Lost in the Blues," and "Any Place I'm Going."

Otis Rush also recorded with Duane Allman in 1969, so you'll hear three of those songs from their sessions at Fame Recording Studio in Muscle Shoals.
