'Rebel' Rod's Ramblngs and other things - "Goin Down the Road Feelin' Bad", but feeling better.
By 'Rebel' Rod Ames
I've been under the weather a couple days and the only words coming to mind were not words at all. Most of the time they were just groans. Today is a new day and I'm feeling like I am might be at about 65% health-wise.
Today's ramblings are just to let everyone know what's going on this coming New Years Day Special Edition of Saturday night's "From Under the Basement" radio show on KOOK 93.5 From 10pm until 2am.
First, there will be a radio interview with Gregg Allman about his upcoming record "Low Country Blues". From what I have heard so far, this is going to be a great record. The interview will take about an hour and will probably go from about 10:50pm until about 11:50pm. The time is approximate but it should be fairly close. It is surely something you will not want to miss.
After that, the plan is to do something I have been wanting to do since I started doing this back in August of this year. The blues have influenced many artists for many decades. Back in the 60's they influenced many young musicians from the USA and across the pond, better known as the Atlantic Ocean, the British Isles. and gave birth to bands such as The Rolling Stones, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Canned Heat, John Mayall, and countless others. Well, maybe not countless, but too many to list here right now.
I believe you get the gist of things though, and will want to make plans to be there. Just in case you do not get the gist of things, here is a sample of what you will likely experience Saturday night. Please enjoy "All Your Love" (Willie Dixon/Otis Rush) as performed by John Mayall's Bluesbreakers.
See you on the radio.
