Listen here to this week’s show:

Well, we were back this week with a big bluesy welcome for our latest edition of The Blues Come Calling. The past week has brought the return of some friendly faces, the odd birthday and some great new music. But, there was also some sadness too, with the news about the passing of Glenn Frey, so I pulled out one of his bluesy numbers to remember him in our own way.

To prove the point about just how much I’ve been enjoying this week’s music discoveries, we kicked off with The Five Altered Blues Band and their swinging blues,’ I’m In Deep’ and followed up with guitarist/singer Keith Thompson’s 2006 release ‘Preachin’ The Blues’.

I’m Going Down The Line – Ear Hooker (Two Bugs & A Roach – 1990)

Like all good things, it had to come to an end and Earl Hooker brought us to the end of this edition of The Blues Comes Calling. So, we headed 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, which is when, hopefully, you’ll be back again, same time same place when once again The Blues Come Calling. Until then . . . . have fun!
