The Blues: 12.3.16 show

Nov 30, 2016

This week's blues show which airs on Saturday, December 3rd at 11pm, starts off with the classic R. L. Burnside song, It's Bad You Know, from the Sopranos soundtrack.  Bobby Rush has a cd out called "Decisions", and you'll hear "Another Murder in New Orleans" which also features Dr. John.  Dr. John's no stranger to violence. He no longer plays the guitar, because his hand was shot with a bullet.

This week on The Blues, we'll begin the show with Gary Moore's version of "Stormy Monday" featuring Albert King.  We'll also hear from Little Charlie & the Nightcats and the popular guitarist Joe Bonamassa in the first set.  The second set features Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens), Cassandra Wilson performing one of  Joni Mitchell's songs, Stanley Jordan's "All Blues," and the great vocalist Nina Simone.  And, the program ends with "When the Music's Over" by the Doors from their 1970 Wight Festival performance.

WVXU-FM repeats a one-hour interview Saturday with Cincinnati filmmaker Steve Gebhardt, who died Oct. 15 at his Cincinnati home. He was 78.

After founding and directing the University of Cincinnati Film Society in the 1960s, Gebhardt directed films for John Lennon and Yoko Ono and produced the “Ladies and Gentlemen, The Rolling Stones” concert documentary in the 1970s. He also produced “Bill Monroe: Father of Bluegrass Music” in 1993 with former Enquirer music writer Larry Nager.

His credits include “John Lennon Live in New York City,” “Imagine,” “Gimme Some Truth: The Making Of John Lennon’s Imagine Album,” “John Lennon and Yoko Ono Present the One-To-One Concert,” “Gotta Serve Somebody: The Gospel Songs of Bob Dylan,” and the short films “Fly” and “Freedom” by Lennon and Ono, according to the International Movie Datebase.

Hard to believe it’s been 50 years since Bob Dylan shocked the music world at the Newport Folk Festival by playing electric guitar.
