Joe Bonamassa to Launch Blues & Classic Rock Radio Show
Joe Bonamassa to Launch Blues & Classic Rock Radio Show -
A new weekly radio show in which rising blues legend Joe Bonamassa will host along with Matt Abramovitz (formerly of Sirius Satellite Radio’s blues channel) launches today.
The show, which will be known as The PickUp, has been described as an “entirely unique and highly entertaining show blending music history and carefully curated songs while bringing discussion and an encyclopaedic knowledge of guitar facts and illuminating insights into the world of a musician.”
Featured music will focus on blues and classic rock from both sides of the pond including favourites like Eric Clapton, BB King, Freddie King, Johnny Winter and Jeff Beck, as well as deep tracks, new and little-known artists, up-and-comers, and more.
The concept for The Pickup came about through the duo's fascination with the artists who can take an inanimate object made from metal and wood, and give it a human heart. The show's title is a name that resonated for a number of reasons. It's what makes an electric guitar electric, and it's exactly what Joe and Matt hope fans will experience: listen to this program and pickup some music, some laughs and maybe some knowledge, too. The show aims to be more than your average radio program - focusing on music education, discovery and enlightenment, and helping people to learn about music and musicians they may not yet know.
The show will be streamed every Friday at www.thepickupradio.com and episodes will be available to stream anytime.
Listen to the debut episode here.
