The Blues with Lee Hay

Saturdays at 11 PM

In honor of the NASCAR races down at Kentucky Speedway this week, I thought it only appropriate to pull out some road songs to share with you.  So, I started off with Lonnie Mack's "Riding the Blinds", Janis Joplin's "Mercedes Benz," then some Eric Clapton and Sonny Landreth. 

The second set begins with "Cadillac Women" by Charlie Musselwhite, "Solid Gold Cadillac" by Mitch Woods and his Rocket 88's, followed by Jimmy Thackery & the Drivers, and Kelly Richey's "Fast Drivin' Mama."

Sonny Moorman's Group starts off the third set with "Take the Motorway,"  then Johnny Winter's "Maybellene", "Two Lane Highway" by the Goshorn Brothers, and Bruce Springsteen's classic "Pink Cadillac."

And, the last set features Bonnie Raitt's "Slow Ride" and Tom Waits "Ol' 55".

Here's a link to an article from the May 30th edition of Guitar Player Magazine about Gregg Allman who passed away on May 27th at the age of 69.  The first time I saw the Allman Brothers was in the early 1970's at Reflections on Calhoun Street.  He was a legend who'll be missed.

This week on the blues show, Saturday night at 11pm, we'll begin with a song from the brand new Alligator Records release by Selwyn Birchwood, Pick Your Poison.  That's followed by Sonny Moorman and the Allman Brothers.

The second set starts off with the Goshorn Brothers live at Tommy's, a blues tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd, and continues with Susan Tedeschi.

A friend of mine gave me a copy of Holly Cole's cd "Temptation" which is a collection of Tom Waits' tunes, so I thought I'd start this show off with one of her songs.  (Saturday, May 6th at 11pm)  And, funny how this happens, but her song, "Falling Down" led to Abbey Lincoln, Mary Ellen Tanner and Larry Kinley.  It's a jazz thing.
