Ry Cooder

On this week's blues show, 11pm Saturday, October 17th, you'll hear some of my favorites.  The first set features music from Gov't Mule, Bobby McFerrin, Johnny Adams, and Diana Krall.  Tom Waits begins the second set followed by Dr. John, Garland Jeffreys, and Ry Cooder.  And the show ends with songs by Delbert McClinton, Susan  Tedeschi, Jonny Lang, and Jimi Hendrix's version of "The Star Spangled Banner."

This week's blues show, Saturday, September 5th at 11pm, starts off with a song,  "How Long How Long Blues," that I heard recently while watching a movie.  I looked up a version of it and then decided to continue the first set of tonight's show with boogie woogie music.

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.)
