Everybody knows about my good thing . . .

Listen here to this week’s show:

We issued our usual caution before we got started this week, so no one should be in any doubt that ‘wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, you’d better be ready when The Blues Come Calling’ . . . . and they did, kicking off in fine style with Mike Zito for a whole hour of the blues. So, if you like the blues then you were definitely in the right place at the right time.

This week, we jumped across plenty of frontiers and time zones in our playlist this week. For those who have seen Mike Zito as a member of The Royal Southern Brotherhood, then there was another familiar face following up, in the form of Cyril Neville with a track from his 2013 album Magic Honey, called ‘Another Man’. But, check the rest for yourself . . .

While Bobby Rush was playing, I glanced at the studio clock and realised there was only enough time for one more track. So, our last choice for this week came from the latest album ‘Lost Time’ by Dave & Phil Avlin . . . this was ‘Hide & Seek’. Then, sadly, we found ourselves at the end of this edition of The Blues Comes Calling and preparing to head for home. But not before we tidied up the records and CDs, put the smiling picture of the station boss back on the wall and waved everyone a cheery farewell . . . at least until next week. Because, we hope you’ll be back again . . . same time same place, when once again The Blues Come Calling. Until then . . . . have fun!
