Music On The Couch


Follow This Show

Stay in the know about new episodes and updates.
Come sit on The Couch every Monday when I present "Musicians You Should Know". We cover Blues and Rock and Roll with occasional forays into Country/Roots and R&B. Each show we interview at least 3 guests and sometimes 4. Many of my past guests honor Music On The Couch by debuting new music before it is released. I have had the honor to present WORLD PREMIERS of a number of albums over the last year.

Upcoming Broadcasts

Sturgis Nikides plays the blues but does it with a flavor of rock and roll, from its origins in delta blues to its far dark alternative edge. Together with the vocals of his partner in life and crime, Mandy Lemons, their music has found its home. Together they are Low Society and I will sit and chat with them about their journey as we listen to You Can't Keep A Good Woman Down, which dropped last week. The band Hurricane Ruth consists of Hurricane Ruth LeMaster on vocals, Dave Lumsden on guitar, Gary Davis on bass and Jim Engle on drums. They originate from central/southern Illinois, packing venues throughout the region. Critics and fans hail their shows as powerful, raw, emotional and dynamic. Their new album, Born On The River, consists of 11 originals that prove their reputation as tthe Ultimate Blues Rock Experience. We'll talk about their road to this point and how they found each other in the world of music. Then I am thrilled to have TWO COUCH KID NEW MUSIC SEGMENTS on the show. First, Ms Rory Block returns with her latest gem, Hard Luck Child - A Tribute To Skip James, a full week before it releases! Rory and I will talk about what she has been doing since her last visit on June 17th of last year and explore her new album, the fifith in her Mentor Series. Then Grady Champion returns to The Couch to talk about his new album, Bootleg Whiskey which dropped last month. Grady originally took a Seat On The Couch way back in January of 2012, and I am excited to have him return with the new album. We'll explore what he has been up to and reask a question we asked in his first interview, "If you had not won the IBC, would your career be the same?" to see if his answer is the same.
