A sad day in the music world with the announcement of the Legendary George Duke passing away at age 67.

In 2008, we interviewed Mr. Duke for our previous website Progressive News Daily (which no longer exists).
It was a true delight to speak with George about all aspects of his career and his music.

You can hear the interview by clicking on the podcast link above. The interview lasts about 15 minutes. Enjoy!

For more on George’s passing, you can read the story from the L.A. Times HERE.

Welcome to the brand new website for Blues podcasts, BLUES BOULEVARD!

To launch our new website, our first podcast is a very special audio documentary on Blues-Rock guitarist, singer and songwriter, Joe Bonamassa.

Joe was kind enough this past summer to lend some time to have a talk with us about his life and music, which to us sounds “so far, so good”.

Below you can hear the special presentation as part one. Then part two is the uninterrupted interview with Joe.

Thanks for checking us out and be sure to stop by often. Also…if you’d like to subscribe to¬† Blues Boulevard’s email list and get a reminder when new programs are posted, just e-mail HERE and put “Subscribe” in the subject line!
