    Show # 271 – Live, Uncut & Uncensored Conversations With “Musicians You Should Know”

    Lisa Grissom from Tall City Blues Fest stops by to discuss the festival on July 10, 11 & 12.  Music On The Couch will be webcasting live once again and I am acting as stage Emcee for this Festival partner.

    Bernard Allison just released his first studio album in 6 years entitled In The Mix, which features all of Bernard's influences. Learning to play at an early age and listening to his dad's albums, put Bernard on solid ground.  He has made himself into his own man and we will explore his journey.

    Chefjimi comes by with the Blues411 Report and I am sure it will include updates on the new bionic knee.


    First, Beth McKee brings her new album, the just released Sugarcane Revival to the Couch and we will speak with her about what has been going on in her life since she last sat with us back in June of 2011.

    Another Couch Kid returns when Ray Goren brings his EP Save My Soul to share.  Ray originally sat with me as part of the Generation Blues Band with Jamie “Bluesboy” Powell.  Jamie passed recently and Ray is continuing with the lessons he learned from his mentor and friend.
