This is me holding the poster of a show I produced in Chicago during a Blues Festival weekend in the late 1990s in a club called the United Nations, which is now Buddy Guy’s.
What a show that was!
This podcast is an outgrowth of an interview I did in 2009 with Bill Wax, Program Director and Host of SiriusXM Radio’s channel – B.B. King’s Bluesville. I talked about the early days of Earwig Music Company and told brief tales about nearly all the artists and records on the label. Every Wednesday morning I will be adding a new story and track from that interview. I will also be posting tales of experiences I have had in my life on the blues highway as well as tracks not yet released on Earwig. I am also interested in interviewing other folks on their own blues odyssey.
I also plan to launch a separate podcast about the business side of presenting blues music and about artist development and promotion.
Please stay tuned. Feel free to post comments, suggestions, questions, or email me at mfrank @ earwigmusic dot com
Good blues to you.
President, Earwig Music Company, Inc.
