Wire and wood fills this edition of The Roadhouse with guitar masters from many spots on the blues spectrum. Albert Cummings, Ronnie Earl & The Broadcasters, Canned Heat, Otis Rush, Sonny Landreth - they all bring a guitar to the table in The Roadhouse. With all these guitar greats, it's a clear-cut case of the finest blues you've never heard - the 544th Roadhouse.

Old-timers know the secret, but newbies might be surprised when entering this edition of The Roadhouse - that the blues is about good as much as it is about bad. Reverend Raven & The Chainsmokin' Altar Boys, Carolyn Wonderland, Buddy Guy, John Ginty, Wee Willie Walker prove the point in this edition by keeping you moving and happy. That's what happens when you find yourself inside another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 543rd Roadhouse.

Roadhouse 542

This edition of The Roadhouse takes the sweltering temps in the US down several notches with cool, cool blues. Charles Wilson, Mitch Mann, Sonny Landreth, Guy Tortora, and Jimmy Reed lead the hour. Even with temps outside The Roadhouse Studios in the 90s, you'll definitely find some relief in our little dive at the outskirts of town. Whether it's temperature, or attitude, or both, the 542nd Roadhouse is clearly another cool hour of the finest blues you've never heard.

Roadhouse 541

I'm cooking up an hour of The Roadhouse that includes lots of new music and a rough set, as well. I've got Samantha Fish, Buddy Guy, Daddy Mack Blues Band, Barbecue Bob, and Bonnie Lee in this edition. With all those great ingredients, it's the perfect recipe for another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 541st Roadhouse.

Roadhouse 540

This edition of The Roadhouse came together as smoothly as a needle through silk, with a sound and feel to match. Wee Willie Walker, Jackie Payne, The Texas Horns, Tad Robinson, and Sugaray Rayford put together all the pieces necessary for another hour of the finest blues you've never heard, a facile hour of blues, in the 540th Roadhouse.

Roadhouse 539

The sawdust is on the dance floor, the red and blue lights are shining on the little bandstand in the corner, and the bartender is washing the mugs, preparing for a big edition. I make the most of the hour with Slam Allen, The Word, Ana Popovic, JJ Appleton & Jason Ricci, and Lazer Lloyd. It's a good thing our little dive's out past the outskirts of town, 'cause we're gonna blow the roof off with another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 539th Roadhouse.

Roadhouse 538

The 538th Roadhouse takes one set to venture into some new territory, but it's all blues at its root. Jackson Mud, Papa Mali, Sonny Landreth, Clay Shelburn, and Jeff Jensen really step up in this edtion. Looking through the playlist for the hour, I have no doubt at all about two things: that the 538th Roadhouse is another hour of the finest blues, and that it's another hour of the finest blues you've never heard.

Roadhouse 537

A rare intermittent Internet issue has left me tethered to my iPhone and pushed a new edition of The Roadhouse back to next week. Enjoy what I hope will be the last Roadhouse Rewind before the holidays - the Chicago-centric Roadhouse 312.

There's a good variety of blues in the 312th Roadhouse, with a stronger-than-usual emphasis on Chicago blues. The hour features Luther Allison, Big Bill Morganfield, Smokey Wilson, Todd Wolfe Band, and a great live track to remember Gary Moore. From Chicago to New Jersey to Georgia to Ireland, it's a well-rounded hour of the finest blues you've never heard.
