Pacific Street Blues Podcast

Sometime in November last year, I was honoured to be asked by award winning US DJ Rick Galusha, along with 2 other northern DJs Ally Lee & Nick Roberts, to put together an hour of British Blues for his award winning Pacific Blues show.
My plan was to showcase some British Blues that the folks across the water might not have heard..
Once I’d done the show I sent it across to Rick and then more or less forgot about it.
The show was broadcast on Sunday Dec. 30th, with my hour broadcast last, and I managed to listen in to parts of all 3 hours. There was some great music played by all 3 of us.

You can hear my segment here – if the player below isn’t working, go here

Here’s my playlist:

Jo Harman                                 Sweet Man Moses                              Worthy of Love e.p

One of Rick’s listeners had this to say:

 The last hour was absolutely exceptional! The songs that that Britsh guy played were some of the best blues songs I have EVER HEARD! I was freaking out. What I need to know is if I can get a playlist of those songs or a podcast or something. I didn’t get a chance to write down any of the songs nor do I remember the name of any of them as I had something else going on at the same time. I’d like to track every one of those songs down and buy them or the albums they’re on. Phenomenal guitar solos, vocals, everything. And can you include some of those songs in your normal playlist rotation from now on? I don’t normally do this but like I said, those songs were phenomenal.

Mitch Laddie & Gary Grainger at The Blues Show – video

Mitch Laddie has been playing Raw Guitars‘ the Prowler and working with Simon Raw on the development of the guitar, which features great pickups by Bob G. Harrison.

Mitch and Simon came into The Blues Show studio to talk about future developments and for Mitch to give a demonstration of the guitar. After Mitch played some tasty slide riffs to show the great sound of the guitar, we though it might be useful to hear how The Prowler sounded in the context of some proper songs.

Well, given that we hadn’t rehearsed at all, this is as proper as the songs got!

I’ve had to just put the video link here as the embed function seems to be bjorked.
