Sunday Morning Blues
As we close in on Christmas 2014, we want to thank you for supporting the Blues in the Boston area this past year. As long as folks come out to the clubs that book those bands, the Blues will continue to survive.
This week we began with a tribute to one of the greatest harmonica players ever – Junior Wells, whose birthday is on Dec. 9.
Hope you had a great Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend. We basked in the glow of three days off and tried not to move too much – we were still full! Louisiana Blues Millennium Collection Savoy Brown […]
Happy Thanksgiving from WZLX and Sunday Morning Blues. Also, thanks to Ken Finnegan from Billerica for coming up with great (and unique) CHOOSE YOUR BLUES list as we celebrated show #777!
Tab Benoit, Baton Rouge guitarist, singer and songwriter extraordinaire, plus defender of Louisiana wetlands, has a birthday on Monday November 17th, turning a young 47 years old, so we had to start with a Benoit tribute!
We began by celebrating two great careers both in the Blues and mainstream rock – the Allman Brothers Band and Bonnie Raitt!
New month, but we looked back a week to musically eulogize the fantastic talent of singer/songwriter/bassist/multi-instrumentalist Jack Bruce.
The underrated and under-appreciated bluesman Elvin Bishop is still out there, touring, hosting Blues Cruises and putting out album after album. Here’s to our birthday boy!
October 18th is the 88th birthday of the singer/songwriter/guitarist and character known as Chuck Berry. We began the show by paying tribute to the living legend.
Stevie Ray Vaughan would have turned 60 on Friday October 4th; we began with a couple from the legendary guitarist we lost in 1990. SRV preferred the Strat, but Albert Collins was the self-proclaimed “Master of the Telecaster.” The late guitarist shares Stevie’s birthdate, as well as harmonica ace Billy Branch!
