This week:
PIERRE LACOCQUE of Mississippi Heat
sit on


Mississippi Heat emerged in 1991 on a night at the Cafe Lura in Chicago. Since then the band has built an incredible following. Veterans of the Ecaussinnes Spring Blues Festival, Chicago Blues Festival, Lucerne Blues Festival and more, this band reaches down and grabs you by the gut and does not let go.

The just released Let's Live It Up! (April 20) is the bands 9th album. 14 songs guaranteed to make you want to get up and boogie. We will speak with Pierre Lacocque, harpest and leader of the band about the new CD and recording with legends Carl Weathersby (Albert King) and John Primer (Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters). There is some rich history to this band and we will discuss it with Mr. Lacocque.

If Chicago-style blues makes you smile, don't miss this one.


Then we get to speak with Ms. Carrie Rodriguez about her brand new release Love & Circumstance (April 13th), a covers album that includes a song written by her father, and once performed by her great aunt.

From her start as a teenager and a violin, Ms. Rodriguez is now touring the world with the likes of Chip Taylor (famed songwriter of "Wild Thing) and Lucinda Williams.

Eight albums in eight years has brought Ms. Rodriguz to this album written by the likes of Hank Williams, Townes Van Zandt and Ry Cooder, to name a few. She puts her stamp on every choice.

How did she choose the songs for this CD and her recent tour with Los Lonely Boys & Alejandro Escovedo will be two subjects we discuss.
