This week's holiday edition of The Blues which airs on Saturday, November 26th at 11pm, is a show of what I call "comfort music."  We start off with favorites the Goshorn Brothers, John Mayall, Garland Jeffreys, and Van Morrison.

Some of the great musicians you'll hear on this show include Trombone Shorty, Dr. John, and Sonny Landreth.  The 3rd set features Delbert McClinton, Dwight Yoakam, Leon Russell and Aretha Franklin who's playing Riverbend with the Cincinnati Pops on July 24th.  And the show ends with John Mayall, "The Laws Must Change."

It's a lovey-dovey blues show tonight with some of my favorites from Aaron Neville to Ernestine Anderson and Harry Connick, Jr.  The show begins (11pm on February 13th) with Ernestine's version of "Please Send Me Someone to Love" which is followed by Little Milton (with help from Delbert McClinton), Larry Goshorn (from his new cd, I Wish I Could Fly), and Bonnie Raitt's "Cure for Love."
