Great Big Rock Jam Report

Blueswoman Shelly Hardinge of Hip-Shakin’ Mama and the Leg Men recently had the honour of having one of her ample mammary glands autographed by blues great Charlie Musselwhite.  I guess there wasn’t any paper handy.  I wouldn’t want to be her husband if that was a permanent marker being used on the makeshift canvas…

As mentioned in the preceding show, “Iron Maidens” now follows “Rockin’ the Blues from Canada” rather than preceding it, in order to allow me an extra hour of sleep after a hard week of the old 9-5 routine.  I also mentioned during that show that Canadian ukulele player James Hill, along with his fiancée and long-time music partner, noted East Coast cellist Anne Janelle Davison, will be featured by Borealis Records in a free streaming of a live concert performed in Toronto last year.  You can check it out tomorrow and Monday evening, at 8 PM EST, at

Toronto’s Blues Element is planning to record its third CD at Rogue Studios in Toronto, with James Paul as their recordist, as he prefers to refer to himself.  Blues Element co-songwriter and lead vocalist Jamie Browning simply refers to him as "amazing".
