Several artists appearing at the Bloodshot Records 15th Anniversary Beer-B-Que

Waco Brothers: How Fast the Time (Freedom and Weep; Bloodshot)
Deadstring Brothers: Ain’t No Hiding Love (Silver Mountain; Bloodshot)
Red Star Belgrade: Highway to Hell (Down to the Promised Land; Bloodshot)
The RSST debuts of Jamie.T (yup, folks, there’s a period in his name) and Erick Hovey in the first hour, a whole slew (how much is a slew anyway? Exactly twice half a slew! — ) of stuff Sherwood’s had in his collection for years but not gotten around to in Hr. 2, and Part 2 of 2 great bands that go great together and the Youngest-Ever Lollipopper-of-the-Week during the home stretch.
Trumpeter Kelly Rossum was my guest, talking about Conflict!, his upcoming release with drummer Phil Hey. I also played new tunes from Alvin Queen, Frank Glover, and Matt Wilson. Older material from Sonny Stitt, Johnny Hartman, and Duke Ellington. And more…
A boogie-heavy oldies set and some Skalphabet Soup in the first hour, a mostly all-new second hour in which Sherwood discovers Etienne Charles (listen for Len ‘Boogsie’ Sharpe on Mr. Charles’ second spin) and in the 3rd hour, 2 great bands that go great together_ The Specials, The Beat and (the together part) The Special Beat!
