Hi everybody!!

Got a special show this month.  My artist of the month is Blind Willie Johnson and the theme is ‘Gospel’.  Blind Willie is a massive figure in 20th Century music although many people won’t have heard of him.  As a spritual’s singer and guitar evangelist, his songs and playing have influenced artists as diverse a Eric Clapton, Beth Rowley, The White Stripes, The Grateful Dead, Peter, Paul & Mary, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin and Robert Randolph & the Family band.  Show goes out tonight at 8.00 p.m., repeated Saturday 7.00 p.m.  Don’t miss it!!

 

P.S.  Don’t forget to ‘like’ my Facebook page and please drop me a line to let me know what you think of the show and any requests you would like me to play.
