Digital Blues Radio Show on Gateway 97.8

21st August 2012
Posted by Ashwyn Smyth

Something rather special on this week’s British Blues Awards nominated Digital Blues on Gateway 97.8 as I have a chat with Sugaray Rayford, the recently inducted Mannish Boy, who I caught up with prior to his supercharged set at the Le Buis Blues Festival a short while ago. He also chose two of his own tracks and one by the Mannish Boys to go with the chat.

Plus there are new and recent releases from Larry Garner, Joanne Shaw Taylor, those Girls With Guitars – Dani Wilde, Victoria Smith & Samantha Fish – Sandi Thom, Zac Harmon, Michael Burks, Soul Stack, The Harpoonist & the Axe Murderer, The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band
Smokin Joe Kubek & Bnois King, Sir Oliver Mally, Randy Kaplan, Johnny Sansome, Leo Hull, Johnny Mastro & Mamma’s Boys, Beverley McClellan and Rick Estrin & the Nightcats. Add in a great cut by Kirk Fletcher and you have an incomparable feast for your lug’oles!

Listen 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
