Roots

If you want to listen to the archive of this week’s show, click “Listen Now”. The show actually starts at 3 minutes 55 seconds into the playback. Before that, it’s old news.

We had quite a few special guests on the show this week. Paul Metsa stopped by in the 2:00 hour to chat about the reunion gig for his old band, Cats Under The Stars. He also brought along a 45 record they made of “Louie, Louie” and another track recorded at Famous Dave’s Bluesfest in 2007.

In the 3:00 hour, John David and The Jerks stopped in and play 4 songs live in the studio. They are having a CD Release Party at my Freewheelin’ First Friday music series at the 331 Club on Friday, August 6.

Thanks to Cliff Eberhardt:http://www.cliffeberhardt.net for the great conversation in the 11am hour! We heard from his latest album, 500 Miles . We also heard new music from Tom Jones (yep, lots of blues covers and gospel-y originals on his new album), The Roots by request, and Mountain Man. Again. Cuz I dig them.
