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!
