THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF JULY 27-28, 2019

The BluesTime in the City family is growing….We’d like to welcome to the family, WQEE-FM 99.1 in Newnan GA, KJUK-FM 97.3 in Hooks Texas, and KTHN-FM 88.3 in Texarkana Texas to the Family.  We like to welcome to the listeners of these great stations and thank you for being a part of the family.  You can always contact us at 404/826-BLUES or text us @rojeneblues, or visit our web site at www.bluestimeinthecity.com.  Again, Welcome to the Family…And Thanks to those stations for airing this program….

There’s an article in the St Louis Post-Dispatch titled “Young Blues Singer Kingfish says he’ll help keep the genre going.”  It by Kevin C. Johnson and it’s a great article on 20 year old Blues Phenom Christone Kingfish Ingram.  Rolling Stone magazine calls him the future of the Blues, but the Clarksville Mississippi native says he’s only tries to live up to the ground put before him…..Just try to keep it going.  He also says “Blues is life, and everyone goes through something.”  I met the young man a couple of years ago, and I must say, he’s very grounded.  The Kingfish has made appearances on The Steve Harvey Show, Luke Cage, and The Rachel Ray Show.  He’s caught the attention of Buddy Guy, funk legend Bootsy Collins, and even rapper The Game.  There is a picture of Kingfish in the article of him standing in front of an old rusted out beat up Chevy truck.  Kind of reminds me of how my daddy’s truck use to look.  Great article by Kevin C. Johnson in the St Louis Post-Dispatch….If you would like to read the article, we have a link to it on the BluesNews Page at BluesTimeinthecity.com…..
