7/9/15: The Blues Had A Baby (It’s Name Was Rock & Roll)


So the Blues had a baby, and they named that baby Rock & Roll.

What a great show it was this week. I had my friend Ed Behan (http://www.40wattgigolo.com) in the Fuzz Factory as my guest host. He was the guest host with the most, because the concept (and many of the contributions) for the Blues Had A Baby special feature were all his.

We rolled out quite a few classic blues songs and many of the great cover versions of those songs. It was quite the history lesson and a lot of fun to listen to. So much so, that we extended the show an extra 30 minutes.

Listen to the Fuzz Factory with Brett Callero Thursdays from 8-11 PM (EST) on SCAD-Atlanta Radio (http://www.scadatlantaradio.org). Listen to the songs posted below for an idea of what I am talking about.
