On this week’s edition of Digital Blues on Gateway 97.8, I remember Westcliff-on-Sea resident Pete ‘Sunny’ Nash who left us six years ago and also the late Cliff Stocker, look ahead to the Great British R’n’B Festival which takes place at the end of the month and have tracks from all of this month’s IBBA Picks of the Month plus much more.

So join me along with Rod Demick, Jerimiah Marques feat Pete Nash, The Marques Brothers, Cliff Stocker and the Legendary Slack Alice & Friends, Wilko Johnson, Roadhouse, The James Hunter Six, Tom Doughty and Wille & the Bandits, The Jordan Patterson Band and Sari Schorr.

In the gig guide there are tracks from Nicky Moore’s Blues Corporation and The Blues Spiders plus I have tracks from Mississippi MacDonald & the Cottonmouth Kings, Saiichi Sugiyama Band feat. Andy Fraser, Jack J Hutchinson’s Boom Boom Brotherhood, Robin Bibi Band, Dan  Bubien and Gonzalo Bergara.

22 damn fine tracks for your delectation!
