It was bandied about in another thread that a blues show might be an idea.
So, I had an idea to do one. So I did.
"Blues From The Iron Range" prototype episode one has been completed. It's two hours long. It may very well be the only ever installment of the show. But I thought it would be fun to do one and play a bunch of my favorite records. So, here's the details.
It's uploaded in two parts about an hour each. It's self contained, e.g. you can play the two parts back to back for a two hour show, although if you play the second hour alone it will sound weird as I welcome people back for the second hour. It is not sponsored, but contains two fake commercials, for a fake made up company. The first is at the end of hour one, and the hour ends after the commercial. You can do a station break here, play your own spots, or whatever, then go on to hour 2. The second fake spot is in the middle of hour 2. The show is brought to you by "Krapco".
As I do when I do the "Oompah Hour" the show is recorded live, in that I "roll tape" (virtual tape anyway) and do the show as a live DJ straight through, so any foulups are live and real. Music covers 1914 to 2017. And I'm sure several tracks you've never heard of, but my tastes are odd and varied and my collection of music runs deep.
So, I present for your downloading, listening, and broadcasting pleasure...

And if this is really somethig people might make use of I might consider doing an hour show once a month -- which isn't much, really, but I'm pretty much up to my eyeballs in stuff do to right now. But I thought od about 438 artists I didn't get to in this show...
