Larry Goshorn

This week on The Blues, Saturday night, December 21st at 11pm, I decided to go back through the archives and pull out a number of songs recorded by local blues musicians in WVXU's Corbett Studio.  I also added in three King Records tunes, Kelly Richey's Christmas story, a song by Tommy Emmanuel, and ended with a live version of "O Holy Night" by Peter Frampton.

So, this Christmas program begins with songs by Steve Schmidt, Bootsy Collins, Robin & Joani Lacy, Sonny Moorman, Greg Schaber, and Stuart Holman/Chuck Adair.  Then, Kelly Richey shares a story about the first guitar she got for Christmas followed by pieces from Larry Goshorn and Tommy Emmanuel.  There's a little section of King Records tunes by Charles Brown, Freddie King, and James Brown.  And, afterwards, you'll hear  music from Ben Levin, The Bluebirds, Marcos Sastre, and ends with Peter Frampton.  Merry Christmas!

This week on The Blues, Saturday, August 3rd, at 11pm, the first set begins with the Claudettes, Ricky Nye, Bob Dylan, and ends with Larry & Tim Goshorn's song "Wild About My Lovin'."  The second set features Shannon Curfman, Gov't Mule, Bobby Blue Bland, and E.G. Kight.  Albert King begins the third set followed by Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble, and Luther Allison.  And, The Blues show ends with Bruce Cockburn's, "Deep Lake."

This week's music scene has lots of holiday events on tap.  From Cincinnati Film Society's presentation of  the documentary "Jingle Bell Rocks!" to the 3rd Annual Island Christmas Holiday at The Redmoor and the Society Jazz Orchestra at Schwartz's Point Jazz Club.

No Promises, the Randy Villars Trio, and the Bromwell Diehl Band all have concerts this week.  And, Larry Goshorn found some of his & the Goshorn Brothers' cds in his basement & took them to Shake It Records if you're still looking for that special gift for a music lover.

This week on The Blues, Saturday night, December 15th at 11pm, the first set starts with James Blood Ulmer, Monty Alexander Trio, Blind Boys of Alabama, & Aaron Neville.  The second set features Hugh Laurie, Tom Waits, Vinx & Chet Baker, and the show ends with Joey DeFrancesco, Houston Person, & Ruth Brown.

This blues show, Saturday, October 20th, at 11pm, starts off with Johnny Adams, Jonell Mosser, Lucinda Williams, and Linda Tillery & the Cultural Heritage Choir.  The second set features Eric Clapton, Gov't Mule, the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band, and Leon Russell.
