Rex Stout ,

Great new and old music. A must for Blues lovers.

A great way to hear all the new releases.

LEL-USA ,

Long Live the Blues

The blues is dead, you say? Not!! This podcast is the proof. Beardo is gone to that juke joint in the sky (Sorely missed, I must say. What a shock!) but Spinner carries on in fine style. Mourn Beardo. Long live his name! Long live Spinner. He's the man, now and he knows his stuff. Long live the blues! That's all there is to say.

Stick to the music

Wish you could stick to the music and the artists and not wallow in the mud of political ignorance. Too many other options available where hosts ensure the music and artists are a priority so listeners may find new musicians and enjoy potentially unknown tunes from known artists.
