Feb 8-9 Radio Show Playlist

Canada’s premiere blues band, in business for over forty years, Downchild, is back with a new release, CAN YOU HEAR THE MUSIC.   Front man, Donnie Walsh, joins Elwood.  Elwood starts by putting a personal stamp on the story by playing a few Downchild songs as covered by the Blues Brothers.  Then Donnie hops in the passenger seat to talk about how exactly you get the American blues in Canada, plus Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, and James Cotton.  And a bar band without a bar.  The Claudettes.  Listen to learn!
