Monday Night the 11th at 8pm: JESSE FULLER - San Francisco Bay Blues

Though a native of Georgia (Jonesboro, March 12, 1896), Jesse Fuller gained fame as the face and voice of West Coast Blues in the '50's and '60's, especially with his "San Francisco Bay Blues".  By the time this album came out in 1963, the title track was already a hit, and he was performing for a wide variety of gigs and record labels.  This album captures his one-man-band prowess on guitar, harmonica, kazoo, ... and his own home-made "footdella".

Thursday Night the 14th between 8pm & Midnight: JAMES HUNTER SIX - Minute By Minute

One of our favorite British soul singers is back after a 5 year absence!  James Hunter has a new release of all original material that definitely summons the souls of James Brown, Sam Cooke, Jackie Wilson, etc., but is no doubt just as fresh sounding as anything else out there.  Produced and engineered by Daptone Records co-founder Gabriel Roth, this is a staff favorite here at WNCW.

Thursday Night the 7th between 8pm & Midnight: EMMYLOU HARRIS & RODNEY CROWELL - Old Yellow Moon

It's been some 40 years since they met, when Rodney lent his song "Blueberry Wine" to one of Emmylou's early albums.  Now, we finally have a full-length collaboration from them, Old Yellow Moon.  Harris has a great history of duets, from Gram Parsons, Linda Rondstadt and Mark Knopfler, to countless artists she's supported as guest vocalist; this one is no exception.  Produced by Brian Ahern (Harris’ ex-husband and early producer) and featuring members of Harris' original Hot Band (which included Crowell), this is sure to be a WNCW favorite for 2013.  And, the CD is
