The Roadhouse is a 60-minute weekly podcast of the best independent blues from around the world. Featuring a mixture of independent artists and permissions-based music from independent blues labels, it's 60 minutes of the finest blues you've never heard. An Association of Music Podcasting feed, The Roadhouse is dedicated to the independent blues artist.
Circumstance drives a Roadhouse Rewind this week. I'll be back next week with a new edition of the finest blues you've never heard.
This edition of The Roadhouse features some old friends, some new one, some quick little ditties, and some of the longest tracks ever played in the show. Tommy Malone, Little Mike & The Tornadoes, Lurrie Bell, Harpdog Brown, and Janiva Magness help make this a well-rounded hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard - the 481st Roadhouse.
I've got music in this edition of The Roadhouse from Detroit, Chicago, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, California - really, just all over the US. There shouldn't be much argument about the tradition of blues in the hour. Eddie Turner, Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Winter, Son Seals, and Lefty Dizz. It's a no-doubt hour of blues and another hour of the finest blues you've never heard.
I've got a good hour of blues ahead. Thorbjørn Risager & Emil Balsgaard, Citizen Cope, The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band, Son of Dave, and Blues on the Loose are among the artists. You read three Roadhouse debuts in those names, too. It's another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 842nd Roadhouse.
It'll come as no surprise that the next edition of The Roadhouse is full of variety. That's been the hallmark of the show for many, many years. Bonny B., Chris Cain, Rory Block, Justin Howl, and Kaz Hawkins help fill the tank that fuels the next hour - another hour, by the way, of the finest blues you've never heard.
Full Head of Steam
In the next edition of The Roadhouse, we get up a full head of steam to push 15 acts across the bandstand. Duke Robillard, Joe Lewis Band, Dexter Allen, The Mighty Klucks, and Soul Thrivers will have you chair-dancing, if not dancing outright in another hour of the finest blues you've never heard.
I've got an hour of little moods in the next Roadhouse: groups of songs that fit together based on the mood they evoke. There's a tough mood, a quiet mood, and a mood that's just a little loud. Ryan Kinder & Robert Randolph, Judith Hill, Bjorn Berge, The Kokomo Kings, and Curtis Salgado help share those little moods in another hour of the finest blues you've never heard.
I love that this podcast is still available
I discovered it many years ago and was introduced to so much great music. I remember it’s the first (only?) place I heard Boo Boo Davis (if you like to hear a classic bluesman with just a smidge of hip hop?) and so many other great female and male artists. If not mistaken this midwestern host also wrote books on UNIX and still found time to share all this great music, thank you!
Simply the best.
I’ve been listening to this podcast for a long time. It is always living up to their description “The best blues you never heard”.
Searched and listened to multiple podcasts trying to find one that provided an opportunity to hear great music from a variety of artists. Roadhouse fulfills that wish covering the blues genre.
Thanks for providing a venue where I can listen to artists I might not have been able to hear otherwise.
