If you asked me a request today and I didn't know it, I'd go get the sheet music tomorrow and learn it so I wouldn't be caught the next time - Carl Martin, interview with Jeff Todd Titon

Britain's Other Blues Show - Bank Holiday Country Blues
« on: August 22, 2012, 01:00:29 PM »
To mark the Bank Holiday, and twelve years of me getting away with broadcasting on UK commercial FM radio, STAR BLUES will present two full hours of acoustic and country blues.

Please forgive the gratuitous plug but it would be good if some of the great and good from WeenieCampbell dropped by on Sunday at 10pm (BST) on Star107.9/1FM around Cambridge and Ely - or from www.star107.co.uk

===
BTW, congrats to Bunker Hill

Well done, Gary. Seem to remember running into you in Grammar School Records in Rye(?) once.

Guilty as charged. Was there again in June and picked up some crackin' rock'n'roll discs. Could happily spend days in there rummaging and chatting to folks who really know their stuff.

BTW Last nights show has already had some positive feedback - my blog has had more visits in 8 hours than I normally get in 2 days. So I will be doing another similar show before long. Other blues shows marked 20 years since SRV died, I played Mance Lipscomb.

Yes Gary, the young shop manager is my son, Matt. He's picked up a lot of info. about different genres of music over the years, including bits about blues and other roots music from me.
