This week's Talkin' The Blues features tracks by Lorenzo Menzerschmidt, a Milwaukee Trio produced (and drummed) by former member of the Violent Femmes, Victor DeLorenzo. There's also music from Portland-based The Strange Tones with their 'crime-a-billy' 50s surf/sci-fi/roots compositions, Atlanta soundtrack/incidental music artist Mark Cook from his new collection entitled Backwoods Chaos, and from Houston by guitarist/vocalist Hadden Sayers, from his recent release called Rolling Soul. Aired Saturday, December 7th, 2013.
Hosted by Bluesman Microwave Dave Gallaher, this weekly show explores the latest tunes and the historic names in blues music.
For the past 20 years, Talkin' The Blues has highlighted the tradition, and little-known treasures that lie hidden amidst the Tennessee Valley's wealth of talent.
