Downhome with Howling Dick (Ep.131 – The Fabulous Denise)

Its that time of year when the ultimate blues pedant Cliff McKnight brings his encyclopaedic knowledge and immaculate taste for all things scratchy to Dick’s porch. They sit around for an hour talking about and playing their favourite pre 1950 blues whilst Mrs McKnight knits away. They also make a plea for all you blues hounds to donate to charity, so if you enjoy the show go put some money in a tin somewhere!

And don’t forget to let Dick know how ya liked it at – he’ll thank ya! Happy Holidays.
