This is show #43, Black and Blues for the last part of February, 2008.
Hey, welcome back, my blues brothers and
sisters! This is Dave Harrison, your bluesman coming at ya once
again from the Star City of Virginia. This month is Black History
Month! As a result I’ve created this show with a lineup of only
African American bluesmen and blues women. But this show is
dedicated to the black men and women that were in the cotton fields
that created this music that has evolved and enriched our lives
through the years! So you ready for some Black
and Blues? I hope so! Crank it up my friends we’re off and
Well, we started of the show with Cephas and Wiggins, Aint Seen My Baby. We will also have Big George Jackson, Kitchen Sink Boogie; Big Bill Broonzy, Wee Wee Hours; Albert Collins, Johnny Copeland, and Robert Cray, The Moon is Full; James Cotton, Superharp; Billy Jones, At Da’ Crossroads; Boo Boo Davis, Standing and the Cottonfields; Boo Boo Davis, Shut That Door; Chick Willis, What The Blues Is All About; Corey Harris, 5-0 Blues; John Lee Hooker, Too Much Boogie; Jessie Mae Hemphill, Lord, Help the Poor and Needy; Lightnin’ Hopkins, Have You Ever Loved A Woman; Robert Lockwood Jr., Train My Baby; and Sonny Terry, Cold Wind Blowing.
Friends, we can’t change history but we can learn from it and learn to live in peace and respect for our fellow man. Each and every one of us can make a difference! To me, I don’t care if you are yellow, black, white, or purple! But if you’re blue and you got the blues in the blood, then you’re all right with me and a friend of mine for life!
A special thank you always goes out to
Michael Allen and the Crossroads Blues
