Mondays - Podcast on


Harry's programme 'Still Got The Blues' showcases the best in R and B music both nationally and internationally including blues from the pioneers of the genre to those taking the music forward today. An emphasis will be on promoting local blues clubs and gigs, hopefully with some live music as well, space permitting. This is Harry's second venture, having previously formed Saltburn Blues Club ( in the beautiful Victorian seaside resort of Saltburn-By-The-Sea. Acts such as Jo Harman, Kirsten Thien, Trevor Sewell and Tom Attah have already performed there with more big names booked to play.

Harry has loved the blues since the late 60s having seen many bands live at the well known Redcar Jazz club such as local lad Paul Rodgers Free, Taste, Vinegar Joe and having bought his first blues album 'Muddy Waters Live at Newport'. That with the music of the early John Mayall albums and Fleetwood Mac albums really turned him on to the blues and as his show says he's Still Got The Blues today!!

CDs and mp3s can be sent to Harry at 24 Bristol Avenue, Saltburn, Cleveland, TS12 1BW and to
