BLUES411 RADIO IS ON THE AIR
CAREFULLY CURATED BLUES THAT YOU CAN USE
KAREN LOVELY RULES THE ROOST THIS WEEK
2016 was shaping up to be a year of change according to horoscopes, Tarot throws, and a general feel of what’s goin’ on..
So we have embraced that feeling by starting our new Blues411 Radio station.
Yep, it is on air 24/7/365 available here http://listen.samcloud.com/w/71723/Blues411-Radio With the demise of our other radio resource we had to decide what to do next. Well to make the long (and tedious) story short, we decided to launch Blues411 Radio, a carefully curated Blues radio station. We hope that you join us over there for blues music that is not just a playlist on a loop. Featuring our Baker’s Dozen of Blues, the only top 13 Blues countdown show out there as well as music covering the wide path that is Blues music. Shows like the Acoustic Parlor, Deep Dish Chicago Blues, Electric Jungle, Blues is a Woman, Fresh Bytes and many more.
We are in a soft opening stage, it is up and running. We will be tweaking it and constantly monitoring it. With ABDOB at the helm of the station we plan on making it one of the key resources for blues music around the world. So please tune in, check us out, share it and, if ya like, hit us up with email at Radio@Blues411.com .
So back to A Baker’s Dozen of Blues for this week. At the number 1 spot this week is BMA nominated Karen Lovely. Her ‘Ten Miles of Bad Road‘ release has garnered amazing responses from all over the world. We will see her at the IBC this coming week in Memphis along with 5,000 or so of our closest Blues friends. Will you be there?
Our Amuse Bouche this week is about the bands who will be at the IBC partaking in the event. Solo/duo acts and bands from around the world will take up the challenge to shine on stage and mingle with fans, fellow artists, label executives promoters and (John Lee Hooker’s words) backbiters and syndicators (no offense, but if JLH can say it it’s worth repeating – boom boom).
We hope you can get a taste of what’s happening there with these selections, and look for more next week while we are there.
