Listen here to this week’s show:

Well, a warm welcome to this week’s edition of The Blues Come Calling . . . and if you like the blues, then you’re
definitely in the right place, because we’ve got an hour of the best of the blues here, with some previews of some
much heralded new releases, some old and new blues and Pinetop’s Pick. But, this week we kicked off with something
from The Texas Cannonball, Freddie King, and his 70s recording of ‘Tore Down’  . . . .

Well, we were so tight on time this week that we were barely able to say our usual farewell, but we did . . . just! We closed the show with the wonderful Moreland & Arbuckle, who are currently on a UK tour and appearing in the Miskin Radio area next week. . . . so, I might see you there. But, whatever happens, we’re hoping that this week’s playlist will encourage you to join us next week, when once again ‘The Blues Come Calling’. Until then . . . have fun!

    Really enjoying these Blues Come Calling, Comish. Lovely little pick from Mr P this week, and great to hear the John Renbourn rendition of Candy Man. Took me back more years that I care to remember.

    • The Commissioner says:

      Well, so glad you’re enjoying these Spinmeister and always pleased to know your particular pleasures (in the blues). Thanks for the kind comments

  2. Arfa Pinetop says:

    Superb Emp loved that ” harp ” version of “Hit the road Jack ” and Marcia Ball great stuff more please! Fatty Arbuckle and co a great track.

    Now a request Mike Ravens theme song was it “Soul Serenade”?


    P.S. Off to the Yorkshire delta the weekend, so a possibility of some “Down t’pit blues”

    • The Commissioner says:

      Glad it went down well.

      Yes, ‘Soul Serenade’ by Beau Dollar & The Coins alias Lonnie Mack & his band. I’ll go looking for it in the Cruising Library.

      Enjoy the pits. . . . but maybe you think you’ve been there already!
