All the blues all the time. An antidote to the moribund, corny and/or humorless blues programming generally found on the radio.

Music fit for a King!

Hello Matt and fellow listeners. I think another dj say last week that this is the first WFMU show specifically dedicated to blues. Is that true? Seems almost unbelievable but I can't think of another.

Hi everyone. Andrew, as far as I know that's true!

Evening all, Hi Matt
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 8:12pm Andrew S:

Well congratulations then :) Of course the genre is well represented here but I think a show devoted to the genre is a very welcome addition. Havent missed a show yet ;)

The Friday night blues DJ on WVKR up here does a fine MLK tribute each year. He played a Dick Cavett interview of Dr. King the other night.

  Tue. 1/16/18 8:20pm lothianman:

great raunchy version of a classic !!
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 8:21pm Andrew S:

Can't top this but a version I've always enjoyed of green onions is by Milt Buckner where he grunts throughout the song and celbrates the oniions making his belly "stick right out"
  Tue. 1/16/18 8:22pm Andy the painter:

well said, matt; re: MLK. his later speeches and writings are revelations, if just in providing a more complete picture.
thanks for the show!

Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 8:26pm Andrew S:

There's some texas blues right there, great track
  Tue. 1/16/18 8:27pm lothianman:

Wow.....not used to hearing Sir Douglas sound like that...who is the guitar??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 1/16/18 8:28pm Matt Fiveash:

It's Doug!
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 8:35pm Andrew S:

the rare occasion where someone whistling doesnt get on your nerves, sounds great

Attention WFMU shoppers!

I'm back with today's public service message. On this playlist you'll now see a link to the 128 AAC stream we've had up quietly for a number of months, but which is now advertised prominently on KDB-generated playlist pages thanks to our friend Kenzo.

If your streamy player (hint: VLC is a good one if you don't already have a favorite) supports AAC, I recommend using this 128k AAC stream instead of the 128k MP3 one. Same bandwidth use, but I think the AAC stream is somewhere between a little and a lot better sounding depending on the music.

MP3 particularly sucks when hit with record surface noise, and you may have noticed that WFMU DJs sometimes play vinyl.

is the documentary Sir Doug & the Genuine Texas Cosmic Groove?

i want this song to follow me everywhere i go!
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 8:40pm Andrew S:

was so lucky to see Gil before he passed. It was a free show and I didnt realise it was torrential rain because i was under the overhang. He was late one hour for border hassles (had a bit of a history with the law), But his band kept us all enthralled til he got there. What a showman, tellse stories like hes talking right to you. Would have been easy for him to not bother showing up. When it was over and I turned around, there were only maybe 3 dozen people there.

The first I heard the Blues was when I heard Leadbelly
  Tue. 1/16/18 8:43pm lothianman:

Phenomenal cut.........lover hearing Leadbelly (or in the band) solo
  Tue. 1/16/18 8:45pm judy from croton:

Enjoying your show immensely!
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 8:45pm Andrew S:

dont know what hes playing but listen to the sound of that guitar, terrific
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 1/16/18 8:45pm Rich in NC:

Thanks Matt, badass show
  Tue. 1/16/18 8:47pm dug:

60 minutes is just not enough time for the blues. Great show Mr. Fiveash
Avatar Tue. 1/16/18 8:57pm Andrew S:
