Friday Night Blues

Fridays from 8:00 PM to midnight CT on HPPR

Friday Night Blues began as a two-hour program called Blues After Hours. It soon evolved into the four-hour program it currently is. It showcases the talents of blues musicians from classic performers, such as Watermelon Slim, B.B. King, and Muddy Waters, to contemporary artists like James Hunter, Susan Tedeschi, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. 

Nowadays, you'll find the blues pouring out over four states and online with a great blend of old school and new school spun in a careful web by Brother T-Bone every Friday night.  Tune in to HPPR on Fridays for the very best in live, studio and rare recordings of the blues. Any way you at it, Friday night blues is a soulful blend of blue note music to ease you into the weekend.

Listen up, those of you in the Texas Panhandle! If you're a fan of HPPR's Friday Night Blues, try some LIVE BLUES this Sunday evening in Amarillo. Thanks to Chip Chandler for stopping by High Plains Morning today to remind us that this weekend, Amarillo College's FM90 presents their first-ever Blues Festival 2019.

"As an artist, my goal is to remind everyone that we’re all here to take care of each other. As an entertainer, my job is to make sure we all have a good time doing it.”      


Today on High Plains Morning, HPPR listeners had the pleasure of a pre-lunch serenade and brief roots music history lesson from Mudbone.
