This episode opens with a non-blues item: the new solo release by Huntsville musician, James Irvin who is known for drumming with Microwave Dave & The Nukes. He also plays a number of instruments at the professional level and writes quality songs- especially in the 80s rock vernacular; Debbie Bond from Tuscaloosa releases the recordings she and her band have made in Muscle Shoals; and Chicago guitarist and songwriter Toronzo Cannon releases his Alligator Records debut.
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.
Talkin' The Blues airs Saturdays at 8pm.
