Today’s show was dedicated to George “Mojo” Buford who passed away in October 2011. November 10th would have been his 83rd birthday. Blues guitarist Brian Dyke stopped by the studio today with unreleased tunes by Mojo from several gigs over a period of 10+ years. Some of today’s show featured label-released cuts, but a lot of the music we played today came from Brian’s private home-grown stash of unreleased vintage tunes by Mojo Buford, Blues Deluxe and Rockin’ Daddy & The Rough Cuts.
Wilbur Cole joined the show today to talk about his upcoming 21st Anniversary show with the Soul Mates. Wilbur talked about the “branches” of the Soul Mates, which are spin-off bands that have formed over the years. All members of those bands will return on Saturday, November 17th to help celebrate the 21 years of connection, and especially spiritual connection, that has happened since the the band’s inception in the 1980’s. The spin-off bands also represent the line-up for the Anniversary show taking place at the Narrows on November 17th, 2012, 7:00pm.
