Listen here to this week’s show:

Well, the blues are back and we’ve been rummaging far and wide to pull together a whole hour of them for this week’s edition of The Blues Come Calling. So if you like the blues then I recommend you relax, lean back in a comfy chair and let’s enjoy some great blues together.

We kicked off with the title track of the 2010 album by Mark Doyle & The Maniacs and then we went back nearly 50 years for Elmore James’ ‘Stranger Blues . . . .
