This is Hairy Larry inviting you to enjoy Something Blue every Saturday night at ten. This week we’ll hear Fred Sanders, Jawbone and Jolene, John Spencer, and theCAUSE.

Don’t miss Something Blue, Saturday night at ten, right here on KASU.

Something Blue – Cause




All right now, kicking us off was the great Fred Sanders singing “Hey Come On Little Girl” from his CD, believe. I had the pleasure of seeing Fred play at Blue Monday in Paragould. Then we heard Jawbone and Jolene do “Baby Got My Back” from their new CD, Lifestyles Of The Poor And Infamous. Jawbone blew harp with Big Red And The Soulbenders at Bluesday Tuesday. And then John Spencer did “Fading Memories” from his new CD, Road To Brigadoon. John played with the Pot Bellied Stallions at Blue Monday. On “Fading Memories” that was Mike “Zif” Lovell on lap steel and Cheryl Culp on backup vocals.

Here’s a couple more songs from the new Jawbone and Jolene CD. First Jolene will sing “Honey Baby” and then we’ll hear Jawbone talking about how he’s “Headin For The Delta”.




Oh yeah now that’s Jawbone talking about some people and places near and dear to my heart. When he’s talking about Cherry Street in Helena you know that’s the Blues.

Now here’s John Spencer and Cheryl Culp again with one of my favorites from his Road To Brigadoon CD, “Come Tomorrow I’ll Be Gone”. Then we’ll hear John sing “Blood Red Sun” featuring Addison Boling on congas.





Now that’s what I’m talking about. It’s theCAUSE recorded live at the Sunshine Daydream Campground on October 22, 2011. They did a Merle Haggard song, “Mama Tried”. What a great sound. Here they are again doing Bob Dylan’s “Ballad Of A Thin Man”.



Oh yeah, it’s theCAUSE singing “You Never Can Tell”. They are a jam band from Pittsburgh and they really get with it. I blog about protest music on the internet and I learned about the CAUSE when one of their band members commented on an article I wrote about “Uncle John’s Band”.
