Twist the clock back 50 years, tonight on The Depths

Greetings fellow music travelers.

50 years ago, in bethel, NY, several hundred thousand people gathered for the Woodstock music and Art Fair. However, that is not where we will be heading.

No, instead, we will spend time 582 miles West of bethel in Ann Arbor, michigan for the
very first festival in America dedicated exclusively to the blues.

The original Ann Arbor Blues Festival's historical importance cannot be overstated, and I will treat your ears to six spine-tingling performances; culminating with Big Mama Thornton absolutely blowing the doors off the place with her powerful rendition of "Ball and Chain", a tune she wrote, and Janis Joplin made famous.

We will also hear some seriously funky tracks from my personal archives, as well as a look back at Boston's "Don't Look back" album, a short feature on the members of The Who, and plenty of guitar pyrotechnics from the late great Alvin Lee at the Fillmore East.

Our musical journey begins promptly at 11:00 PM Eastern immediately following The Snowman, and repeats on Wednesday at 4:00 PM.
