Albuquerque native Bobby Shew spends his 69th birthday talking with host Mark Weber about all things trumpet.
Big birthday party for maestro Bobby Shew who was born this very day in Albuquerque back when Tingley was mayor (1941). I'm not sure we'll discuss surfing the Rio Grande but we will be discussing all things trumpet. Bobby Shew's illustrious career continues to take him around the world and into every dimension. His knowledge of trumpet is staggering. SO, that's what we'll talk about. Host Mark Weber.
Plus, guest Host Poppy Tooker tells us about Food and the Blues.
BSC is proud to dedicate an entire program this week to Mavis Staples, live from the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise.
Born in 1940 in Chicago, most of Mavis Staples' career has been as lead singer for the legendary Staple Singers. Her otherworldly power comes instead from a masterful command of phrasing and a deep-seated sensuality expressed through timbre manipulation.
