I'm about 24 hours too late, but every Friday from 2-4pm (New Orleans time) WWOZ's Blues Breakdown is my favorite radio show of any genre. If you're looking for a couple gems that you have to dig deep into the vaults for, this is the show for you.

I'm pretty sure she's a Raindog, too. She usually squeezes a Tom Waits song into each of her sets. (Yesterday being Big Time's Way Down in the Hole)

This one's been slipping into page 4, now we just can't have that :blues:

Bullfrog Brown seems to have what it takes for a blues combo, quite tasty, (and great videos, too)...

Blind Willie Johnson is the greatest, and a huge inspiration for Tom (Waits). What an amazing human being.

You'll never understand how happy I am that I come here and people actually know their blues and aren't a bunch of armchair musicians arguing about the merits of ol' Pruneface Clapton.

I am just very very excited now, after accidentally discovering Karen Dalton! What an incredible voice! What a great performer she was!





Her voice is very similar to that of the girl in the english group Congregation (I say 'group' but there's only two of them), but, as cool as they are, her voice kinda gets to me before the album is finished.. Not so with Karen Dalton, though. But check them out anyhow, if you haven't. They're a pretty fresh group from what I gather, so she'll come around :) And the album is good, really - great sound!
