This weeks interview is with one of my favorite artists Dana Fuchs. They’ve come out with a new CD/DVD set on Ruf Records called Songs From the Road. Besides the GREAT music we always get from Dana Fuchs this new one has a lot of her newer songs done live from the outstanding Bliss Avenue CD. Dana Fuchs puts on a great live show and having a DVD of the show is perfect. I can’t think of anyone I’d rather get to see perform live than Dana Fuchs and now you can too.

This weeks interview is with blues legend Billy Boy Arnold. We’ll be talking about his new CD The Blues Soul of Billy Boy Arnold but Billy also talks about getting a harp lesson from Sonny Boy Williamson when Billy was just a kid and how Bo Diddley got his name.

This weeks interview is with the guitarist Sturgis Nikdes of the band Low Society. Sturgis along with lead vocalist Mandy Lemons wrote all but two of the songs on this fine CD of theirs called You Can’t Keep A Good Woman Down.  Sturgis is a very impressive slide guitarists with a country flavor to his playing but these are defiantly hard hitting blues rock songs.  One of the songs you’ll be hearing in this weeks show is “This Heart Of Mine”.  It sounds like something off of Led Zeppelin’s first LP. Mandy’s vocals are very passionate along with Sturgis guitar playing. This is a CD you’ll be going back to over and over again.

Otis did vocals on three songs on the new Dave Specter CD and now Otis Clay & Johnny Rawls have put out a CD together called Soul Brothers. This Otis Clay & Johnny Rawls release Soul Brothers is what we will be concentrating on this week.
