The BluesMobile with Elwood Blues – 2 HOURS PER WEEK
The BluesMobile with Elwood Blues is the longest running blues show in radio history, on the air since 1993. The original Elwood Blues himself presents great blues music and musicians. The role of Elwood is played by Dan Aykroyd, the writer and actor who originated the role on television and on film.
Each week, Elwood celebrates the past, present, and future of the Blues. Each hour is devoted to one theme in Blues music, such as one artist’s life and music or a theme, such as cars, trains, women, guitars, harmonicas or soul music. Plus, Elwood chooses his favorite NEW song of the week, his Blues Breaker.
In-studio interviews include the brightest stars in today’s blues galaxy: Eric Clapton, Janie Hendrix (Jimi’s sister), Buddy Guy, Bonnie Raitt, BB King, Super Chikan, Tommy Castro, Susan Tedeschi, Elvin Bishop, Jack White, the North Mississippi All-Stars, Duke Robillard, Charlie Musselwhite, Joe Louis Walker, Taj Mahal, Joe Bonamassa, and Joanne Shaw Taylor.
The program also regularly pays tribute to Blues legends like Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Little Walter, John Lee Hooker, Koko Taylor, Ike Turner, Jeff Healey, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Michael Bloomfield and many more. Elwood’s interview archives stretch back over 20 years and he re-plays rare interviews with many of the past masters when the time is right.
Elwood’s Blues Break – 5-minutes-per-day (Monday-Friday) companion show for Elwood’s BluesMobile. There is a short intro, then a place for a spot, then a story with a song. The daily show is a great promo for the weekly show and is also an ideal sponsor opportunity.
