The Blues spectrum is incredibly varied, and there are several hues represented on this week’s program. It kicks off in a big way with brand new Tommy Castro, shifts into a set of acoustic based numbers; then you enjoy a jazzy selection, some soulful material, and we wrap up with true-to-form Chicago Blues.

The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is the fantastic slow Blues, “A Fool’s Lament” by Zora Young & Little Mike and the Tornadoes. The song appears on the new album, Friday Night, which is available now from the independent label Elrob Records.

This project is a New York meets Chicago collaboration that sees Chi-town’s Blues diva teaming up with the New York boys for 11 total tracks.
