Big City Blues Cruise 56: Tail Dragger

Martino D’Lorenzo is playing the blues on 45s, 78s and LPs from behind the wheel of the Big City Blues Cruise bus, spinning his classic modern radio programs from the 1980s and 1990s originally aired on WEMU-FM in Ypsilanti MI and now heard every Saturday on Radio Free Amsterdam. Episode 56 features music by Red Prysock, Johnny “Guitar” Watson, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Los Lobos, T-Bone Walker, Chuck Berry, B.B. King, Jimmy Witherspoon, Jimmy Rogers, Muddy Waters, Sunnyland Slim, Howling Wolf, Albert Collins, and a saxophonist I’m going to guess is A.C. Reed closing the show.
