This edition of The Roadhouse is of a feel. Not quite Chicago, not quite West Coast, but a texture all its own. Lil' Ed & The Blues Imperials, James Day & The Fish Fry, Lynwood Slim, Igor Prado, and Joey Gilmore are all ahead. I think you'll get the feel right away and agree that it's definitely another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 522nd Roadhouse.

The mix in the 521st Roadhouse is definitely eclectic. Robin McKelle & The Flytones, Gary Moore, Shaun Murphy, CeDell Davis, and Tangled Eye fill the hour with new releases, most of which have just been released in the past month. I'd say this is definitely the first you've heard of these releases because - yes - it's all about another hour of the finest blues you've never heard.

It's a long-time tradition in The Roadhouse to set the tone of the show with the opening track. For the tenth anniversary show, I've got an hour of opening tracks that'll unquestionably have you chair-dancing. RJ Mischo, Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings, Mighty Lester, Victor Wainwright & The Wild Roots, and Mitch Kashmar & The Pontiax are just some of the featured artists in this hour - a celebration of ten years in The Roadhouse.

We're at the corner of Maxwell and Halstead this week with an hour given over entirely to Chicago. Focused on the years from the mid-1940s to the early-1970s, we hit what may be a sweet spot for Chicago blues. Little Walter, Junior Wells, Otis Rush, Big Bill Broonzy, Big Walter Horton - legendary names that helped define Chicago as The Home of the Blues. It's another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 516th Roadhouse.
