A Rolling Stones Special: Got Blues If You Want It!
Join It's the Music for a Rolling Stones overload! The program explores the blues and rhythm & blues roots of The Rolling Stones. Top-notch music writers, musicians and fans provide context for a cavalcade of the Stones blues classics - both their covers of songs by their heroes and their own bluesy takes on their original rock 'n' roll.
The show also features clips from some of the original artists that inspired the Rolling Stones to play music - Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Slim Harpo and more. This program is no 'greatest hits' parade of overplayed Stones classics but instead features more of the unsung blues numbers that peppered their repertoire like "Little Red Rooster," "I'm a King Bee," "Love in Vain," "I Just Want to Make Love to You," "Ventilator Blues," and a recently released outtke, "Keep Up Blues," just to name a few. In other words, the perfect alternative Stones special, just for public radio!
You can hear the Tampa Bay exclusive broadcast this Monday part 1 and Tuesday part 2 on WMNF’s It’s the Music between 1 and 4pm. It’s only Rock and Roll—but we like it!
