The Blues Foundation: Blues.org THEE site for blues. This stellar organization, which everyone needs to be a member of, is spearheading a campaign to finally build a physical BLUES HALL OF FAME in Memphis and is close to breaking ground. They also produce the annual BLUES MUSIC AWARDS every May and the IBC (INTERNATIONAL BLUES CHALLENGE) every late January where bands from all over the world “compete” for awards/recognition. With the formation of the UBS, we are now an affiliate and are eligible to send a band from Utah!
90.9 FM KRCL: The best radio station on the planet! Well… debatable… but since March of 1980, you can hear Brian Kelm on the RED, WHITE & BLUES program every Monday night from 8 – 10:30 p.m. And for you night owls, you can also catch Jolene Whitaker with ILLUSTRATED BLUES every Friday morning from 3 to 5 a.m.! Their weekday hosts, John Florence, Ebay, Eugenie and especially Bad Brad Wheeler are known for playing a blues or two as well. Listen anywhere, anytime at www.krcl.org!
The Blues Blast: Great online free subscription resource out of Illinois (so has a bit of a Chicago blues bent) with all sorts of interviews, news, CD reviews, etc., delivered about once a week, free, to your Email.
Alligator Records:Arguably the premiere blues label with Genuine Houserockin’ Music since 1971, and a good, free Email subscription which tells you of Alligator news, when Alligator artists are touring to your town, etc.
Add links to various bands, performers, etc.
