Hey Mike.
I really enjoy your show and find myself listening to them over and over again to hear the songs (and maybe remember some of the commentary better). Your dialog on the songs is what's really missing from most forms of brodcast.
Your cocaine blues show (cocaine's a hell of a drug!) is definitely my favorite, followed by the canned heat and jake one. I guess because there's nothing more blues-worthy than songs about hopeless addiction to horrible drugs that'll get you sent to jail and worse. Always makes me feel better about my problems ;)
Anyway please keep it up!

Hi Mike,

Really interesting blog! I never knew what 'bonus' a few of these bluesmen were referring to in their lyrics but always wondered.
So, thanks very much for that info!
Sadly, the GREAT BLUESMEN/WOMEN from the late 20's to late 40's, had no idea what a huge foundation they were laying down for future years to come in every genre of music. People who have never heard their original music will never know either.
