Someone once commented that Kelly Richey sounds like “Stevie Ray Vaughan trapped in a woman’s body with Janis Joplin screaming to get out.” Over the course of 14 albums, decades of touring, and amazing live shows, that description has gone from a compliment to almost a calling card. Kelly Richey possesses the same skill, charisma, and determination those two legendary artists once held.

Kelly sat down with Johnny Full-Time for conversation and music from several of her albums. The pair discussed Kelly’s brand new CD, Sweet Spirit, new band members Freekbass and Jyn Yates, Richey’s brief hiatus from music in 2010, and much, much more! Listen to the show at the link above.

This episode of Full-Time Blues Radio features an on location interview between Johnny Full-Time and Charles Walker band members Charles Walker and Porsche Carmon. The band recently brought their tour through Louisville, Kentucky, and sat down with JFT to catch up on all of the exciting things they’ve been up to since their other appearance on FTB Radio – back in 2010!

Based in Miwaukee, Wisconsin, the Charles Walker Band began as a group focused in the Blues, that drew on other musical influences. Over the years, the band has evolved into a very diverse band that blends Blues, Funk, Soul, R&B and more into their own original sound.

2012 was a big year for Charles Walker Band. The band released the live album ReSouled! earlier in the year, and followed that with Relentless, the first studio album to feature Porsche Carmon on vocals, in late 2012.

John, Charles and Porsche talk about all of that and much more in this episode of Full-Time Blues Radio, which features nine songs from four CWB albums!
