This week’s Digital Blues on Gateway 97.8 is mostly looking ahead to the forthcoming Great British Rock & Blues Festival at Skegness this coming weekend but we also remember two departed greats and there is the gig guide.

There are tracks from Tommy Tucker & Etta James, both of whom died around this time in past years, plus, in the gig guide, I have tracks from Tim Aves & Wolfpack and Jerimiah Marques & the Blue Aces.

Then it is all about Skeggie! Although it has proved difficult to find up to date info about who is playing I think I have it right with tracks from Federal Charm, Shaggy Dogs, Dr Feelgood, The Yardbirds, Cliff Stocker & the Legendary Slack Alice & Friends, Steve Roux’s Brass Knuckle Blues Band, Alex McKown Band, Chantel McGregor, Roadhouse, Jamie Williams & the Roots Collective, Rosco Levee & the Southern Slide, Paul Lamb & the Kingsnakes, Matt Woosey Band, Dove & Boweevil Band, The Little Devils, Zoe Schwarz Blues Commotion and Jo Harman. 

To top and tail there are tracks from the Phantom Blues Band & Don Baker. A very tasty melange to tantalise and tickle your taste-buds!

Listen in between 21.00 & 23.00 p.m. UK time Wednesday by tuning your radio to 97.8fm in Basildon, East Thurrock and surrounds or by clicking on the Listen Live button in the web site header at and/or at
