STAR BLUES on 22nd February 2009

Though family matters kept me off-air last night, the blog still previews the show upcoming on Sunday.

Sad news of the week was the death of Snooks Eaglin, he did not get through his recent illness, though he leaves a very rich legacy of recordings for over forty years as a solo performer and in a band setting. If a blues artist was a musician's musician, Snooks was it - a giant of New Orleans music with a warm throaty voice and a distinctive thumb-picked guitar style. He was only 73, I thought he was older than that as he always seems to have been there. You can expect a couple of his songs on the next Star Blues.

I'll also have an extraordinary track off the as yet unreleased new album from Aynsley Lister, you will not believe your ears. Along with gospel and some piano blues, I'll bring you the latest in blues news, views and reviews - until Sunday at ten on FM and online at take care of yourselves and take care of those that take care of you

Gary Blue
