March is upon us, let’s hope that overall the weather treats us a little bit better than it has so far this year.
Lots has been happening, the voting deadline for the Blues Music Awards has come and gone, now it’s time to tally ’em up – and then convene in Memphis in May for the celebration and coronation of the winners. As we all know everyone who got a nomination is a winner, and if we gonna have a contest and votes someone gotta take home something!
Speaking of taking home the ‘bacon’ this week we got us Chicago Home-boy Tom Holland & The Shuffle Kings, with their release “No Fluff, Just the Stuff” at the #1 spot. Congrats Tom, well deserved.
We also have some new additions to the ‘big chart’ one is an outstanding vocalist and lady Ms. Shaun Murphy, the other is a very cool cat who has the ‘down-low’ wrapped up tight and outta sight, Mudcat!
Our Amuse Bouche features the song ‘All Your Love’ this week. Inspired by Scott Muni from NYC Radio back in the day, and more currently by Bill Wax and his ‘wash cycle’ we are featuring our pu-pu platter of ‘All Your Love’ with versions by 8 artists, hope ya enjoy it. If not we will only run this type of thing once a month so…
One extra special spot is Michissippi Mick Kolassa and his new release, all proceeds go to the HART Fund and Generation Blues – so give it a listen and buy it and do the right thing. You can find out more about these parts of the Blues Foundation at the above link to their site.
