As the fall season begins, some terrific new release music becomes available for fans to consume, and those fall releases are streaming in to our offices; and that means they will hit the airwaves on this and future episodes of Full-Time Blues Radio. This week features new discs from Webb Wilder, Andre Bisson, and many others.

You’ll hear the title track from Peter Karp’s new live disc, The Arson’s Match, which was recorded live in New York City with guest Mick Taylor. Peter Karp and Sue Foley have been creating some incredible albums together in recent years. In 2015, they team to release individual live CDs, together, to benefit the fight to end ovarian cancer. Live For Hope is a double live set featuring Karp’s aforementioned The Arson’s Match, along with Sue Foley’s live disc, Change. Proceeds from the sale of Live For Change benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. The best way to stay up-to-date on where and when you can purchase it is by visiting and by staying tuned to for updates.

Although I take great care in curating the playlist each week on the show; I feel this week’s playlist is one of the strongest non-special theme episodes, musically, that I can think of in a while. This week’s selections are stout, and they flow very nicely with one another. There are five 2015 releases, with many of the 2014 selections arriving on our doorsteps late. Out of 13 tracks featured this week, eight of them are from albums that have never been featured on the show!

The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is “Long Way To Memphis” by Greg Nagy. It comes off his third studio album, Stranded, which was recently released on Big O Records. The album was produced by Jim Alfredson, who also plays on the record. There are also appearances by Dave Gross, Jim Shaneberger, and others on this disc.

The highlight, though, is simply being able to enjoy new music from Greg Nagy. He shares co-writing credit on many of the nine original numbers, here. There’s only one cover out of the 10 tracks, coming in the form of a new interpretation on Bobby “Blue” Bland’s “Ain’t No Love In the Heart of the City.” Nagy’s voice is powerful, and at the same time, vulnerable; and he continues to explore his genre influences beyond simply Blues music. You can find out much more on Greg, his music, and his tour schedule on his official website, and be sure to scroll below the playlist, where you will find a video from Greg’s YouTube channel, featuring a sampler of all the tracks from the new album Stranded.
