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

Just had some hot dogs. I hope Hasil respects that. Won’t cut off any heads, tho.

Not this week but I play Freddy a lot.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 8:40pm Kamp Climax:

Matt, as someone who plays so much blues, who do you believe is the most overlooked/underrated? You just don't think they get the credit they deserve.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 8:42pm Matt Fiveash:

Tommy Johnson!
  Tue. 1/30/18 8:42pm lothianman:

Sonny Boy is incomparable...aside from the harp lyrics are so solid !!
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 8:43pm Matt Fiveash:

Billy Boy Arnold.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 8:43pm Matt Fiveash:

Many more but I gotta cue up a record!

BLOOZ ! The greatest, most brilliant, most relevant & impactful thang the USA has done *ever* invented. We should all be fluent in its' History - & appreciate every such effort as this to move me that one small yard further down that path...
...@ last I check this Program - by Archive, as I must: thus, sparing you my compulsive commenting @ showtime
(...har har har...)
...Any chance of you Podcasting it? After all - nobody *ever* actually pays these Originators
(...har har har...)
