This week Andy Poxon is back with us to talk about his new CD Tomorrow. As you recall his last CD Red Roots was pretty much a blues-rocker. This new one is a more complex group of songs and styles. Duke Robillard was the producer of this CD which gave all the songs a very clean and perfect sound.
This week Brandon Santini is back to talk about his new CD This Time Another Year. Brandon is mostly known for his former band Delta Highway and as being a fine young harmonica player. This CD really shows him as a fine blues vocalist also. Most of the CD is originals but a few well-chosen covers have been thrown in too. Jeff Jensen is now the guitarist for the band and does a fine job. Brandon Santini should have a bright future in the blues world and especially after people start hearing This Time Another Year.
It’s been two years since Grady Champion was last on the show talking about his CD Dreamin’ which came out right after he won the IBC. Grady’s new CD Tough Times Don’t Last is a little more upbeat, his voice is sounding even better and his harp playing is great. Grady is a good storyteller and his song “Mississippi Pride” really shows that off. It is obvious Grady Champion has a real future in the blues.
This week Dave Widow talks about being a blues man. Dave has worked with some impressive artists like Buddy Miles and Bonnie Bramlett. On his second CD Waiting For The World To End Dave has assembled an impressive group of artists to help him out. With songs like “Piss You Off”, “Reach Out”, and “Bluesman” you’re going to really like this CD.
Get ready to have a great time because Chris Thayer of the band Big Papa & the TCB are on this weeks show talking about their new CD Six Pack of Cool. From the very first time I heard this CD I knew I had to have them on the show. The music is up beat and fun with great horns. With songs like “Drink Drank Drunk” and “Papa’s in Da House” you’re going to be hearing them on the radio a lot this year.
