Friends of the Blues
Hosted by James “Skyy Dobro” Walker and D’Arcy “Shuffle Shoes” Ballinger, Friends of the Blues features legends like Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, and Sonny Boy Williamson along with current “unknown” wailers like Kid Ramos and Too Slim and the Taildraggers. Also featured are regional standouts like “Mondo” Cortez’s Chicago Blues Angels and the Kilborn Alley Blues Band. The hosts are immersed in Blues culture, past and present. True aficionados, they know the artists, the labels, the recordings, the band members - and they do a good amount of traveling to live blues performances throughout the U.S…two friends talking about the music they love.
