EMAIL MR. CHARLIE
Every Sunday morning from 9-11 am, Mr. Charlie serves up the best new, old, acoustic and electric local, regional, national and international blues for your listening pleasure. Since its start in 1991, Blues For Breakfast has been the Champlain Valley and beyond’s premier blues show. Listen each week for all the blues that fit: in-studio interviews and performances, news, birthdays and concert calendar. In 2015 he was honored with a Keeping The Blues Alive Award for Commercial Radio from the Memphis based Blues Foundation.
Coming up on Blues for Breakfast:
8/9/20 #1532: Sunday marks the 25th anniversary of his passing, so we’ll remember the bluesy side of Jerry Garcia, along with Happy Birthdays to Son Seals and David Crosby and new music from King Solomon Hicks, Dave Fields and Mark May.
Wow, what company at the Keeping The Blues Alive Induction ceremony! Sat next to Mike Vernon, the legendary producer who did 8 John Mayall albums along with 10 Years After, the original Fleetwood Mac, Savoy Brown and virtually every U.S. bluesman you can think of (talked his ear off for 3 hours!); Tony Mangiullo, owner of legendary Chicago blues club Rosa’s; Pete Carlson, one of the only non-native Americans ever allowed to film their ceremonies, and producer of multiple award-winning blues documentaries; as well as winners from Spain, Norway, the Netherlands, Poland, Finland, and Germany. The blues truly are International. I am so humbled to be part of this class of 15 in ’15!! And thanks to Dana Somayaji for coming in from Ottawa, and Bruce de Bree from VT to share this moment.
