Full-Time Blues Radio first hit the airwaves on June 7, 2008. What began as a way for “Johnny Full-Time” to play some of his favorite Blues and get some more experience as a professional radio personality, has evolved into a weekly destination for Blues fans to find music, news, and interviews that you can’t hear anywhere else. We’ve heard endless hours of music over the year, and it’s incredibly difficult to boil all of that down to one, 59-minute episode; but I feel like this episode flows really well and features many of the best aspects from the show’s brief history.
There are many people who helped me get to this point, and I couldn’t keep doing the show every week without the support of listeners and fans. Thank you for spreading the word and spreading the love. Thank you to my wife for being supportive and allowing me to miss certain events. Thank you to my family for investing love and money into the show. Thanks to WUEV for giving us a place to start and a flagship after the move to Louisville. Thanks to KPVL for joining the family. Thanks to the River Basin, Indiana, and Kentuckiana Blues Societies.
Thank You – for visiting this site, for sharing the show, and most importantly – for listening.

Full-Time Blues Radio returns to the best in new and independent Blues music, this week, with a slew of brand new arrivals. After two amazing special episodes, and ahead of our big 5th anniversary show next week, Johnny Full-Time packs in as many new release songs as he can into this overflowing hour of music. In addition, there’s a lot of Blues News coming out of Florida – including a new festival, and an art exhibit that incorporates Blues portraits, history, and music!This week’s featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is “New Orleans” by Cassie Taylor. It comes off her brand new album Out Of My Mind, which is available now on Yellow Dog Records. Although Cassie Taylor is the daughter of Otis Taylor, she has done a masterful job of establishing her own identity, and creating her path playing her own style of great Blues music.
The album is available in a variety of formats, including vinyl LP, and you can Click Here to Preview Clips from Every Song on Out Of My Mind

Classic Performance Video by Koko Taylor Below This Story!
A Gainseville, Florida cultural center is unveiling a new way to experience Blues music that incorporates art, history and music. The Thomas Center is hosting a new interactive exhibit through September 7, 2013 called “Blues Pioneers and Their Progeny.” This exhibit revolves around 40 paintings of Blues legends, including Robert Johnson, B.B. King, Koko Taylor and more. This artwork was produced by one man simply known as Ty the Portrait Guy.
In addition to the art, organizers have crafted a full experience for visitors by adding short biographies on each Blues legend’s life and career. What’s more – using an app on your smartphone, visitors can interact with the exhibit by listening to songs by each of these artists!
Thomas Center officials noted in a news report that the exhibit is less of a history of the Blues, and more of a way for folks to hear some of the genre’s greatest artists – and hopefully explore the catalog of music further, on their own. The exhibit is open to the public, and you can Click Here for the Exhibit’s Official Website.
