Genuine guitar geniuses featured on TFTB!
Henry Cook and I hope you will join us for Time For The Blues this Saturday night, December 3rd, at 9:00, as we come your way with some great new blues! We have a couple of genuine grade A flat out guitar geniuses.
First of all, there’s Buddy Guy. Even at 86 years young, this man delivers better than just about every blues guitarist around. I had the chance to catch him twice before lockdown and he put on shows that absolutely blew me away. I understand that he is retiring from touring (can you blame him?) but I hope he keeps putting our records like his latest – The Blues Don’t Lie.
We’ve got three from this hot disc that we are looking forward to sharing with you on Saturday night.
If that wasn’t enough, we got Walter Trout stepping into the spotlight as well. He’s got a brand new disc out, Ride, on Provogue/Mascot and we are going to share some of his six-string pyrotechnics as well.
As if that weren’t enough to get you going, we’ve got a new release from Michelle D’Amour and the Love Dealers, and I love Michelle D'Amour. We’ve also got new releases from The Mighty Soul Drivers and Yates McKendree. Keep your eyes on Yates McKendree, this young man is definitely going places!
Finally, we’ve got a set to pay homage to one of our most loyal listeners who left us his library of blues in his will. Robert “Bob” Nugent was a great man and he loved the blues. We’re going to honor him by playing three sides from his collection that just happen to feature some hot guitar work. We’ve got Son Seals, Little Charlie & The Nightcats and Hound Dog Taylor to round out the night.
All in all, it’s a great show and we would love to have you join us for the fun if you care to join us at 9:00 this Saturday night. That’s December 3rd, and you can find us on one of these great VPM Stations: 89.1 WCNV, Heathsville; 90.1 WMVE, Chase City; and the flagships, 93.1 and 107.3 VPM-Music and 88.9 HD2, Richmond, and streaming online at VPM.org where it’s always Time For The Blues!
