This is Hairy Larry inviting you to enjoy Something Blue every Saturday night at ten. This week we’ll hear The Emporium Orkestra featuring Will Taylor and Diamond Jack.
Don’t miss Something Blue, Saturday night at ten, right here on KASU.
Something Blue – Will Diamond
Welcome to Something Blue. I’m Hairy Larry and I’ve got the Blues, for you.
All right now we are featuring the Bunky’s Breakfast Emporium Orkestra recorded live on Cherry Street in Helena Arkansas on October 7, 2010 at the King Biscuit Blues Festival. We heard my friend Will Taylor do a Johnny Cash song, “Big River” followed by “Buckets Of Rain” and “Little Sister”. Will is from Little Rock. Besides playing with us at Helena he has also played at the Craighead Forest Bandshell.
You probably heard me singing along on “Little Sister”. Listen now as Will backs me up on “Love In Vain” and “San Francisco Bay Blues”.
We’re getting it at Bunky’s Breakfast on Cherry Street in Helena, Arkansas. The Bunky’s Breakfast Emporium Orkestra bring Blues and Jug Band Music to the breakfast crowd at The Biscuit Thursday, Friday, and Saturday mornings during the festival. It’s an open stage, true acoustic, and the core band consists of campfire musicians who camp at the Fireman’s Campground. So we play all night around the campfire and then we get up after a few hours sleep and play music for breakfast. You got to love it.
I’m Hairy Larry and you’re listening to Something Blue on KASU, 91.9 FM and streaming on the internet at kasu.org.

Back to Will Taylor singing three more songs for you. Here’s a Dylan tune, “It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry”, a Gospel number “Down To The River To Pray”, and an all American classic, “Sixteen Tons”. Ok now, it’s Will Taylor.
Now that’s what I’m talking about. The Bunky’s Breakfast Emporium Orkestra is featuring Diamond Jack, recorded live at The Biscuit, October 7, 2010. Now that’s the Blues.
We heard “Come On Down To My House”, “Sneakin”, “Me And The Devil Blues”, and “Tell My Baby I’m Coming Home”. It’s a real pleasure to listen to and play with Diamond Jack every year at Bunky’s.

I’m Hairy Larry and you can message or friend me on Facebook or on the Delta Boogie Network at deltaboogie.net. Diamond Jack’s wife and bass player is Elan Holdsworth and you can friend her on Facebook too.
I’m going to let Jack introduce the band. Here he is singing three more songs, “Lousiana Stripes”, “Walking Blues”, and “Highway 49”.
Carl Hall is a regular performer with the Emporium Orkestra. I first met him at the Fireman’s Campground playing around a campfire. Closing the show he’s going to sing the Jimmy Reed classic “Baby, What You Want Me To Do”. Until next time this is Hairy Larry reminding you once again, Blues is the mainstream.
