THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF NOVEMBER 10-11, 2018

Earlier this year, it was announced by Aitterce Productions that they were established a 24/7 Blues Television Network, the first television network dedicated to Blues Music.  It was the brain child of Blues Singer E.C. Scott who made a video to support her latest BCD, but then found out there was no place for it to be seen.  So, she along with three partners put their plan into action with the goal of expanding the visibility of the Blues, according to their earlier press release.  In the California area, it can be seen on about 40- stations, and according to E.C. Scott, “We love Blues music and want it to flourish.  We are committed to making Blues relevant to new audiences.  We use television to show people that Blues music is alive and relevant.”  I counted, and they have about 40 stations and still growing.  If you want to find out more about BTN, we have a link on the BluesNews page at bluestimeinthecity.com.  Hopefully next week, we’ll have an interview with E.C. Scott….

As we’ve been talking throughout the program, this weekend, November 10th is Bobby Rush’s birthday.  Bobby told me something about two months ago that I’m suppose to keep secret.  The statue of limitations on the secret has run out, and it’s OK to talk about it.  There is a movie coming out in 2019 that Bobby is a part of.  Bobby is playing himself, but he got the chance to meet someone that he always wanted to meet.  Here’s Bobby to talk about the movie, and the person he met.

New York is Mississippi upside down….Great story from Bobby meeting Eddie Murphy, one of his idols……..The original film came out in 1975 and Rudy Ray Moore, who passed away in 2008,  was the writer and the star.  Eddie Murphy is the star and producer of this one titled Dolemite is My Name, and it in 2019 on Netflix….
