June 23, 2016 Show, PART ONE

Welcome to the first-ever two-part Dirty Roots Radio archive.

I think it's got something to do with Albert King...

Last time I played "I'll Play the Blues for You, Pts. 1 & 2", the station completely crapped out quickly thereafter. We were off the air for a couple of weeks. Tonight, I played it, and the Dirty Roots computer died. Don't get too into the song when you hear it here... :) That's a warning that you're about to have to advance to Track #2.

We're just not properly zoned for all the blues power of that song.

At any rate, this first half hour or so was pretty great, as we were just finding our vibe for the night. The interview with Bob Mehr (author of "Trouble Boys: The True Story of the Replacements") and a whole lot of other bidness follows in Track #2.
