Bakers Dozen of Blues: June 6, 2016

Music City with logo



Ladies set the stage again this week. Andria Simone takes the #1 slot this week. A finely constructed release that shines a light on her earthy and sensual vocals. We have enjoyed this CD immensely and thank Brian Slack for turning us on to it.

We have 2 new additions to our chart. Blues Music Award winner Lisa Man and Alabama Mike. We look forward to you enjoying these two releases in the weeks to come and hearing the depth that these artist possess.

chi festWe are at the Chicago Blues Festival. Spending time with our friend Meg Ramos,  who just relocated here from NY. Plus seeing friends from Rochester, NY, John & Susan Klein. That’s the icing on the Chicago cake as we will see so much music and have so much fun that I wonder if we will be able to get any news to ya’s.

We are in week 2 of Michael Kinsman and his Hoodoo Ya Ya radio program. It premieres for the week Midnight Saturday (9pm West Coast). There’s a lot of great music there so tune in.

That great graphic at the top of the page shows our newest addition to the Blues411 Radio family. It is called, none other than the, Music City Blues Kitchen and it is a IMG_9621partnership between  Gina Hughes and The Galaxie Agency and Blues411.

It will feature artist interview with them playing DJ for us. We will cover their music, inspirations, memories and just about anything we can. The first show premieres TODAY MONDAY JUNE 6th at NOON. It features a rollicking interview with Nashville’s Blues Ambassador Stacy Mitchhart. Heck it went so well we got two segments out of it, so be sure to catch both parts.

Please check our constantly updated schedule on our page.
