The single word to describe this hour of The Roadhouse is "debut." I've got five artists in the hour who are making their Roadhouse debuts.

Colin James, Rose City Kings, John Blues Boyd, The Jackson Whites, and the Jeremiah Johnson Band help fill the hour. Let's welcome the new artists to The Roadhouse, knowing they'll provide big contributions to another hour of the finest blues you've never heard.

The Rides, Jimmy Rogers, Big Maybelle, Big Mama Thornton, and Charley Crocker. We're about to go for a ride across geography and time.
