I've been to Hell and back in - I bought a round trip ticket. To Hell, Norway that is. Good little blues festival, but I just couldn't get into the Norwegian band names - Blind Arne Bjornson and the Tundra Gators? - Jerry Ricks, Port Townsend 99

Santa brought me  a copy of 'Blues for Francis', a collection of Francis Wilford Smith's scripts for the radio programmes he did for BBC Radio 3 over many years. In the 1950s he amassed a huge collection of piano blues 78s, which formed the basis for the Magpie blues piano series. His radio programmes covered the piano blues, of course, but also gospel and guitar blues. Recommended.
Somewhere in my cassette drawer are recordings of most of those radio programmes...
