heard fortnightly, next on air Tuesday, 6 June 2017 - 2:00am to 6:00am

The show includes a wide variety of music from Chicago's finest such as Buddy Guy, (who opens the show), Koko Taylor, Junior Wells and Muddy waters.

Also bands that were heavily influenced by the blues such The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton and John Mayall are featured along with Country blues guitarists such as Papa George Lightfoot, Leadbelly, Doctor Ross and other lesser known artists. I like to include some of my favourite jazz and soul artists like Al Green, Marvin Gaye, Ella Fitzgerald and even a little Duke Ellington slipped in every now and then.
