Saturday Blues

Saturdays, noon - 3 p.m.

Every week on Saturday Blues you will hear blues songs from the 1930s to yesterday! The show always starts with “Good Times” by Aretha Franklin followed by church music or Gospel songs. All the original blues singers came from the church in one way or another, good or bad. 

As Muddy Waters once said, "You get a heck of a sound from the church. Can't you hear it in my voice?"  Although it's not blues, the show always finishes with Van Morrison because he loves the blues; and hosts Brother Frank and Father Jay enjoy listening to him. In between, there will be some Robert Johnson, delta and acoustic blues, electric blues, and horns.  The whole gamut including a few surprises!

 

Steev Inglish is a singer, guitarist and harmonica player who was born in South London in 1950. He came to Cleveland Ohio in 1985 and has been a fixture on the U.S. blues scene for more that two decades.  His latest album is called Live n’ Kickin’.  It was great to have this bluesman in the perform in the studio with Brother Frank and Father Jay on Saturday Blues.

Samantha Fish recalls her first musical taste as the classic rock of The Rolling Stones and Tom Petty, alongside contemporary artists like Sheryl Crow and The Black Crowes, but after several underage clandestine visits to the Knuckleheads Saloon blues club in her native Kansas City, she followed the thread from modern masters like Zito and Tab Benoit, through fallen ’80s heroes like Stevie Ray Vaughan, right back to the pre-war Delta masters.
