This Saturday evening on the Blues, February 11th at 11pm, some of my favorite lovey-dovey songs from some of my favorite musicians.  The show starts off with Leon Russell's, "A Song for You," followed by Shemekia Copeland, Etta James' famous "At Last," and Leonard Cohen performing "I'm Your Man."

Peter Frampton starts off the second set which also includes Diana Krall's, "Peel Me a Grape," and the classic Miles Davis tune, "My Funny Valentine."

This week's blues show, Saturday, March 5th at 11pm, begins with the Doc Robins Band, Lisa Mann and ends with Van Morrison and New Orleans favorite Johnny Adams. 

During the second set, you'll hear from Matt Anderson, Bobby Rush, and the Inner City Blues Band.  The rest of the program features Vinx, Chet Baker, Diana Krall, and Gov't Mule.

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."

The Blues: 6.6.15 show

Jun 4, 2015

This week's Blues show, 11pm on Saturday, June 6th, begins with New Orleans native Wynton Marsalis, the great blues singer Nina Simone, and Cincinnati's own jazz legend Jimmy McGary.  Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra will be performing at Cincinnati's Riverbend Music Center on Saturday night, July 11th, and then heading up to the Rose Music Center at the Heights concert venue the next evening, Sunday, July 12th.

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."
