This show is all Paul Newnum, with an encore from a few months ago, 12/26/20 to be exact. An oldie but a goodie. Paul covers the Top 25 blues CD's for the month, plays a few near misses, puts Bob Corritore in the spotlight and wraps with a "Best Of" Smokestack Lightnin' set. It's a trip down memory lane from the not-so-distant past.
Rob McKinney presenting the Smokestack Lightnin' Top 10 for the week, Beth McKee grooving to some of her 70's favorites, Paul Newnum with an encore segment, and Jerry J playing some blues to make you move. Four hours of blues time VERY well spent.
What an incredible show! In hours 1 & 2 Rob salutes the 2021 Blues Music Award Winners. Beth has a salute of her own as she profiles Florida blues artists, and Jerry J anchors the show with song that are sure to be your new favorites. Enjoy all 4 hours and make sure to tell your friends.

Fours hours of great blues music! Rob leads off with an hours of brand new music that's hot off the presses. A couple of encore hours follow with Paul anchoring a "Best Of" Smokestack Lightnin' playing some new tunes, some old songs and everything in between. Enjoy!
Rob has the brand new blues CD's that we got from around the world. Our new guest DJ Beth McKee spotlights the music of blues women, Paul does his encore thing and Jerry J plays his favorite blues in hour 4.
Over the past 29 years we have done a lot of tribute shows when artists passed away, they were inducted into our Hall of Fame or we just wanted to do a tribute to them. This is a collection of them with the original DJS telling the story.
