Listen here to this week’s edition of The Blues Come Calling:

.
Well, after the familiar intro theme, we kicked off The Blues Come Calling this week with power blues guitar man Brad Wilson and a track from his latest album Power Blues Live and it was a top choice, ‘All Kinds Of Fool. Now there seem to be plenty of new blues releases around just lately, so we were spoilt for choice, but we followed on with another from the new releases . . . . this time it was Jimmy Adler with ‘I Can’t Wait’, which you can find that on his new album Grease Alley . . .

But, we had run out of time on this week’s Blues Come Calling, so there was nothing left to do but head for the door, having first cleared up the records and CDs, put the smiling picture of the station boss back on the wall and waved everyone a cheery farewell. Then we were away, at least until same time same place next week. . . . . and remember . . . . have fun!

Listen here to this week’s edition of Down at Kokomo’s:

.
Well, there was no doubting where we would be heading, as the hours of the night ticked away. We joined the familiar faces all making their way down the well trodden path to see what’s happening Down at Kokomo’s. Of course, there was the cheery face of Antoine at Mook Loxleythe door to give us his customary smile and, as we ambled in, there was the comforting sound of the playlist giving out with just what the ‘groovers’ had come for. Miss Rosie was in her own territory, behind the bar, ready to refresh everyone.

Shake Your Tailfeather – The 5 Du Tones
Hip Teens Don’t Wear Blue Jeans – Frank Popp Ensemble
Ask Anybody – The Ad Libs

Well, the Mark 3 Trio just about wound things up for this week. Miss Rosie got busy clearing the bar and tables, Jazzy G was reaching for his coat and Antoine was at the door seeing everyone out with a cheery ‘goodnight’. So, thanks for your good company and we hope that we’ll see you again soon ‘Down At Kokomo’s’ . . . . until then . . . . have fun!

Listen here to this week’s Cruising with The Commissioner:

.
Well, there were plenty of things to compete for our attentions around the Grand Duchy this week and a few opportunities we couldn’t let pass without a measure of excitement. Our giglist is shaping up nicely and we added a date for the only UK appearance this year Cruising #2036 mrby Carlos Santana. He’s got a new album due out soon, which brings back many of the members from his first Santana band. We even got our hands on a preview copy of a track from the album, that certainly has recaptured that classic Santana sound.

Our cheery postman has been busy too, on our behalf, dropping in some excellent albums, including a couple from The Wentus Blues Band . . . . and no surprises, they get included in this week’s playlist. The Cruising researchers spotted quite a few birthdays (of those past and present) to celebrate, like Ernie K Doe, Fats Domino, Johnny Winter and Bobby Charles . . . . so, (you guessed) we had to include something by them amongst our choices. But before any of those, we kicked off with another birthday boy, Mitch Ryder, with his big hit ‘Jenny Takes a Ride’ . . . . . a highly recommended pastime amongst the Cruising Crew!

Laura Lee – Bobby Charles
Just A Little Bit Of Your Love – The Fortune Tellers
Rocket 88 – Rufus Thomas
My Guardian Angel – The Monorays

Our guests came by, as usual, with their own music choices and demonstrating such diverse tastes too. The Shake brought along one of his 45s by Minnesota’s 70s band Husker Du, which was way, way away from the scratchy blues that got featured in Pinetop’s Pick, the Convicts of Cummin’s Farm with possibly the first ever recording of that folk/blues classic ‘Rock Island Line’. Meanwhile, our Girls & Guitars featured focused this week on Christina Skjolberg, who was born and raised on the northwest coat of Norway and you may already know that she’s a left-handed guitarist who appeared on the Norwegian blues scene a couple of years ago. So, to demonstrate her style, we chose a track called ‘Close The Door’ from her most recent album called ‘Come & Get It’.

Then, the sands of time ran out for our cruising adventure and we turned for home with some rocking stuff by The Monorays. So, back where we started, we parked up the Cruise Mobile, gave it a quick polish, so it was all ready for next week . . . . when we’ll be back, same time, same place, with a seat saved especially for you. Until the next time we go Cruising with The Commissioner . . . . have fun!

Well, at the studio clock ticked around to 8pm, the Thursday night revels at Miskin Radio began in earnest. There was a cheery welcome at the top of the hour, as the rocking sounds came spilling out to signal the start of this week’s Rocking Good Way show . . . . althoughJivers 3 it it was not the familiar voice of Shakin’ Sharon that followed.

This week The Commissioner was sitting in again until Sharon comes rocking back from the recovery room . . . . soon, we hope! But, the show had all the familiar features, including the Doo Wop Stop, a Quirky Quest and Jukebox Roulette (where the Jukebox picks the tunes) and more. The playlist was filled to overflowing with great rockin’ toons, designed to get everyone reaching for their dancing shoes . . . . A few Fats Domino songs got sprinkled across the playlist to celebrate the Fat Man’s birthday this week and we kicked off the show with a suitably danceable Triple Shot . . . .

So, until the next Rockin’ Good Way . . . . have fun . . . . and keep rocking!

The Blues Come Calling - header - blogsize

Listen here to this week’s edition of The Blues Come Calling:

.
Well, it got to 5pm on Saturday and the familiar theme music came wafting across the airwaves, signalling another hour full of excellent blues on this week’s edition of The Blues Come Calling . . . . and if you like the blues then it was definitely the right place to be.

As if to prove it, we kicked off the show with B.B. King and a track from his Ace album ‘Here’s one you didn’t know about’ . . . . but now we do, because that was ‘Shut Your Mouth’. Never missing a subtle hint, I quickly shut up, so we could all hear The Mr Hurricane Band featuring the great Charlie Wood on keys and vocals with ‘Tired Sad & Lonely’ . . . . and it all rolled on from there . . . .BBKing_cov72dpi_1

Shut Your Mouth – B.B. King (Here’s One You Didn’t Know About – 2015)
Tired Sad & Lonely – Mr Hurricane Band with Charlie Wood (Barcelona To Memphis – 2014)

If I Get My Hands On You – Will Wilde (Live In Hamburg – 2016)
I Ain’t Drunk – Fat Daddy Blues Band (Love & Kill Me – 2005)Dave Meniketti - On The Blue Side

Well, the sands of time ran out for us and we nearly didn’t notice . . . We were enjoying the music so much. But, sadly, Fat Daddy’s Blues Band had to be the last choice for this week’s show. Then, there was nothing left to do but head for the door, having first cleared up the records and CDs, put the smiling picture of the station boss back on the wall and wave everyone a cheery farewell . . . . . at least until the same time same place next week. So, until then . . . . have fun!

Listen here to The Commissioner sitting in on A Rocking Good Way:

.
Well, Thursday night rolled around and the unsuspecting got a surprise when they tuned in to hear A Rocking Good Way. Instead of the familiar voice of Shakin’ Sharon, they got a cheery welcome from The Rocking good way #11Commissioner, sitting in on this week’s edition of the show. Why? . . . well because Shakin’ Sharon was at home recovering from an operation and we wished her a speedy return to her rocking good health with a playlist of suitably rocking good music from TC . . . like this . . .

Listen here to this week’s show Down at Kokomo’s:

.
Well, the nights are still chilly around Kokomo’s, but there are still plenty of friendly facesRobin Kelle who head this way to have fun until the midnight hour. But then, there’s always a very warm welcome Down at Kokomo’s, with plenty of good company and fine sounds to take us through to tomorrow.

We loved bringing back that Steve Miller song ‘Abracadabra’ by Robin McKelle, along with the smooth sound of Deon Jackson and Jean Shy’s rather fine reworking of the old gospel number ‘Elija Rock’. But, it all kicked off with Wynder K Frogg (otherwise known as famed UK organist, Mick Weaver) and an invitation to see what’s behind the Green Door . . . .

Green Door – Wynder K FroggJean Shy
Abracadabra – Robin McKelle
I Can’t Go On -Deon Jackson
Elija Rock – Jean Shy
The Boy From New York City – The Ad Libs
Work Song – James Royal
Ain’t Giving Up Nothing – Al King
Here I Come Again – Mighty Sam McClain

It was good to see the floor pretty full from early on and the Al Kingdancers seemed to enjoy the mid 60s sound from the likes of The Ad Libs, as well as James Royal’s take on the Nat Adderly and Oscar Brown JR composition ‘Work Song’. But, midnight crept up on us and, all too soon, it was time to wind things up Down at Kokomo’s . . . . Miss Rosie was busy clearing the bar and tables and Jazzy G was reaching for his coat and Antoine was at the door seeing everyone out. So, thanks for your good company and we hope that we’ll see you again soon Down At Kokomo’s . . . . but until then, remember . . . . have fun!

Listen here to this week’s Cruising with The Commissioner:

.
Cheered by the daytime sunshine, we arrived in the Cruise Mobile at the appointed hour with a bright and breezy welcome to this week’s Cruising with The Commissioner. There were plenty of reasons to be cheerful too, including some encounters with friendly faces and some additions to our giglist.

This week, we welcomed back our guests The Shake Cruising #2035 mrand Arfa Pinetop with their choices for our playlist. The Shake brought along something from The Brothers & Sisters and Pinetop’s Pick went back to Chicago for a live performance with bluesman, Luther Allison. Later, our Doo Wop Stop included some fine examples by The Visitors and The Nitecaps.

We picked out a couple of pieces from the Chess label, including a great piece of musical story telling from Chuck Berry in ‘The Jaguar & The Thunderbird’, but the real inspiration came from Thom Hickey and his Immortal Jukebox blog (https://theimmortaljukebox.com/2016/02/09/bo-diddley-rhythm-rules-rhythm-rules/), where he wrote a great piece on Bo Diddley, saying that he remembers laughing out loud the first time he heard the opening lines of ‘Who Do You Love’ . . . . so we took another listen. But first, we set off with Jerry Bradford leading the vocals with The Spades on their 1961 Rebel 45 ‘Hey Hey’.

Who Do You Love . . . . Who Do You Love - Bo Diddley
Hey Hey – The Spades
Jump Children – Dave Bartholomew
Don’t Lie To Me – Fats Domino

There were a few anxious moments last week, when some of the Cruising Crew thought we’d forgotten our Girls & Guitars feature. So, to comfort the easily unnerved we pulled forward and focused on all-girl band ‘Girlschool’ . They started out in South London, and after several changes of line up released their debut album ‘Demolition’ in 1980. We chose a track from that album with Kelly Johnson on lead guitar on their version of the hit for The Gun . . . ‘Race With The Devil’.

We geared up for a rocking finale that caused Mr Merlot to collapse from near exhaustion. But, we waved an bottle of fine wine under his nose and he revive quickly. Then we parked up the Cruise Mobile and gave it a quick polish, ready for next week, when we hope you’ll be back, same time, same place, to go Cruising with The Commissioner. Until then . . . . have fun!

The Blues Come Calling - header - blogsize

Listen here to this week’s episode of The Blues Come Calling:

.
Well, there’s no shortage of great blues around at the moment, with plenty of new albums getting released and more on the way. So, we arrived with so much music, we knew it couldn’t possibly all fit into this edition of The Blues Come Calling.

As if to prove it, we kicked off with Boston based guitarist and singer Lois Greco, with ‘Let Me Love You’ . . . . a track from her current album and we’re waiting on her new album, ’Earthly Pleasures Heavenly Blues. Then we followed up with the first of our new releases . . . Detroit’s Thornetta Davis with a preview of her new album, ‘Honest Woman’, Bonnie Raitt with ‘Gypsy In Me’ from her forthcoming ‘Dig In Deep’ album, then more new stuff from Adam Franklin, JW Jones, Rev Ferriday, The Wentus Blues Band and R.B. Stone.

Thin Red Line – The Wentus Blues Band Lucky Strike Mama – 2016)
You Don’t Want Me – R.B. Stone (Some Call It Freedom, Some Call It The Blues -2016)

We dipped back to the 20s for some scratchy blues from Oscar ‘Buddy’ Woods and this week’s Pinetop’s Pick celebrated that classic Fleetwood Mac line up and guests on ‘Blues Jam in Chicago’.

We had plenty more in the pending tray, but, sadly, we came to the end of this edition of The Blues Come Calling before we could fit them all in. So, we saved them for next week and started heading 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 then, same time same place when once again The Blues Come Calling. Until then . . . have fun!
