The Blues with Lee Hay

Saturdays at 11 PM

Blues lovers will enjoy spending Saturday nights listening to their favorite music with longtime blues host Lee Hay.

This was a fun show to put together since I enjoyed listening to lots of favorites this morning.  It was hard to narrow down the songs to share for this lovey-dovey edition of The Blues.  But, we'll start off with one of my favorites from back in the day, Leon Russell's "A Song For You," from his self-titled album on Shelter Records.  That's followed by Shemekia Copeland's, "Happy Valentine's Day," Etta James' classic "At Last," and then Leonard Cohen, "I'm Your Man." 

Janis Joplin was one of the iconic singers from the 60's free spirit scene.  Her flame burned brightly for the few years she performed on stage from the Monterey Pop Festival to her death too soon in 1970.  I didn't get to see her perform when she appeared at Music Hall, but there are still fans around town who did.

This coming Saturday night, January 31st, at 11pm, The Blues will begin with a just-released collaboration of Gov't Mule and John Scofield from their new cd, Sco-Mule.  "Hottentot" will be followed by Miles Davis's "Tutu" and Joe Cocker's "Respect Yourself."  The second set will feature Keb'Mo, Eric Bibb, and Cyndi Lauper.

And, the third set is a commentary by music historian Dave Lewis on the musician Bix Beiderbecke who was born in 1903 in Davenport.  Dave's research details Bix Beiderbecke's connections to the Cincinnati area.

Proceeds from this concert will benefit Play It Forward which helps support local musicians in time of their need.  The show starts on Saturday, Feb.7th at 8pm at St. X. 

Here's a link to Gem City's video for their song, "They Know Me."
