Roadhouse 621  

I think I've got another hour of blues ahead that you'll find to be just solid. Big George Jackson, Thorbjørn Risager & The Black Tornado, Hadden Sayers, Bo Carter, and Ronnie Baker Brooks. The hour includes a trip into the deep blues roots - something I haven't done for awhile. But, overall, it really is something I do every week: give you another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 621st Roadhouse.

Roadhouse 620  

Every hour of The Roadhouse is a little bit of a winding road - we tend to swing from one groove to another, usually in the context of a set. This hour will be another of those twisted treks - a little blues rock, some acoustic blues, a couple of live tracks. Quinn Sullivan, The Ragpicker String Band, Craig Erickson, The Jimmys, and Wee Willie Walker lead the way. I think there's bound to be quite a bit in the hour ahead that you like - but I'll admit to my own bias. I am certain, though, that you'll like another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 620th Roadhouse.

Roadhouse 619  

If you're an old hand in The Roadhouse, you know the drill, here - an hour of great blues variety. If you're new, I'm glad you stopped by and I think you might be in for a surprise or two. Big Golden Wheeler, Ronnie Baker Brooks, Sharon Lewis, Popa Chubby, and Lucinda Williams are all ahead. I've also got at least three artists making their debut in The Roadhouse. All in all, you know it makes for another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 619th hour of The Roadhouse.

Roadhouse 618  

We're building a strong hour of blues in this edition of The Roadhouse. Jack Mack & the Heart Attack Horns, Lucky Peterson, Kenny Neal, Moreland & Arbuckle, and The Mighty Mojo Prophets provide the bricks, with another seven or eight artists providing the mortar. All told, it takes a lot of hands to construct the hour, but when it's done, you end up with another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 618th Roadhouse.

Roadhouse 617  

We're down to two Roadhouse hours left in 2016. What's up in the 51st hour of the year? The Rolling Stones, JW-Jones, Michael Burks, David Bromberg Band, and The Blind Boys of Alabama. If it's cold where you live, this one will keep you warm. If it's warm, I think you'll find this to be a very cool hour. In any case, you know it's going to be another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 617th Roadhouse.
