The old saying goes something like "If it ain't been in a pawn shop, it can't never play the blues." On Delbert McClinton's latest album he ponders a queston related to that old axiom. If I Hock my Guitar is about 2 minutes worth of gravel-voiced song writing genius. Plus hear from frequent McClinton collaborator Whitey Johnson AKA, Gary Nicholson and we go under with the latest from Robert Randolph & the Family Band.
Recent Siouxland visitors Dustin Arbuckle and the Damnations open the TOB tonight, future visitor John Primer is on the show too. I'll just go ahead and list Doyle Bramhall II as well, in hopes that somebody will book him for something in Sioux City some time in the near future.
Joe Louis Walker teams up with pianist Bruce Katz and harmonica player Giles Robson to open up the show. Plus we'll also debut a new live double album from Beth Hart and a classic from the late Otis Rush.
Colin James digs into tonight's TOB. His new album is called Miles to Go, plus we have some local(ish) flava with Josh Hoyer from when his band was still called the Shadowboxers and we honor the memory of Otis Rush who passed away in late September.
