All the blues all the time. An antidote to the moribund, corny and/or humorless blues programming generally found on the radio.

Interesting with the Sun Records tunes.........I was listening somewhere and the guy said he could recognize the Sun studio by certain subtleties in the recording

Hi! Not around this time often (used to catch the Thursday Drummer Stream show all the time). Hey Matt! (love this Lonnie Johnson, the jazzy bluesman).

Is there a list of all the co-hosts for the marathon?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Matt Fiveash:

Not yet but it oughta be up on the homepage pretty soon.

@Folsom - There's a start: www.wfmu.org... I'm sure additional days will be filled in as we go.
  8:36pm Larry Ozone:

If you can push your music envelope a little, I have some 50 year old suggestions: "Showbiz Blues" by Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, "She's Got A Ring in His Nose And A Ring In Her Hand" - British entries. And one of the most accessible from Captain Beefheart "Click Clack" Sincere Blue-eyed Blues.
  8:39pm lothianman:

had to check the volume there.....truck, yeah
  8:40pm kimzilla:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Gaylord Fields:

Matt, I get a little worried whenever I hear someone on WFMU play a song by a centenarian. But I just checked, and whew! Carry on.
