SHOW #245 12/01/14
HOWARD & THE WHITE BOYS
Howard & the White Boys (Howard McCullum, Rocco Calipari, Pete Galanis and Jim Christopulos), got together for a little jam in 1988 and the magic of what they brought to the table was evident. Their 6th album, Rosa’s Lounge, is their second live release. I sat with guitarist Rocco Calipari and we discussed his career and his time with this band and also his other band he has with his son, Rocco, Jr.

BILLY BOY ARNOLD – Segment Begins At The 1:15:40 Mark
Billy Boy Arnold has released a new album, entitled The Blues Soul Of Billy Boy Arnold. He released his first album in 1952 and has been thrilling audiences ever since. The new album was produced by Duke Robbillard and features a group of incredible musicians backing him.
I spoke with Billy Boy about his career, which did not always go smoothly, his take on the blues, being inducted into The Blues Hall of Fame in 2013 and his BMA Nomination this past year. What an honor to have this legend sit on The Couch.

Niecie has a new album entitled The Other Side, and she returned to The Couch to discuss this collection of songs and what her life has been like since she first became a Couch Kid.
