Chicago harp man Billy Branch stops by to talk about BLUES SHOCK, the first CD he’s made with the legendary Sons of the Blues in fifteen years.  The episode starts with a sample of old school Chicago harmonica from Little Walter, Howlin’ Wolf, and Junior Wells.  Then on to some influences on Billy Branch, including Willie Dixon (with whom he played), and Carey Bell.  This week’s breaker comes from  a great roots player out of Canada, Brandon Isak.
