With the Pandemic closing the world and making it impossible for us to meet in Memphis for the International Blues Challenge, I decided to go through over 180 hours of interviews and select some for your listening enjoyment. 

I wish I could have included more...but it was just impossible given the time available.

ENJOY and SEE YOU IN MEMPHIS IN 2022 (I hope)!!!!!
