WHQR's Front Street Blues spins Randy McQuay's New CD, My Kind Of Blues

Front Street Blues host Lan Nichols explores the newest release from one of North Carolina's most prolific blues artists of the new century, Randy McQuay. A three-time finalist of the International Blues Challenge in Memphis TN, Randy brought the IBC solo championship trophy back to Wilmington in 2015, leaving no question about his hard work and love of the  blues. My Kind Of Blues was recorded in Wilmington and Nashville TN, and Randy's chops on guitar, harmonica, foot drum, and percussion remind us of his innate ability to effortlessly multitask and make it sound easy. His voice? Deep, soulful, and expressive - but you already knew that. On this episode of FSB, you'll also hear tracks from Sonny Boy Williamson, JJ Thames, Muddy Waters, Vin Mott, Jimmy Rogers, and the latest CD from Grady Champion.

Tune in to Front Street Blues every Saturday, from 11:00 pm - 12:00 am on 91.3fm or open your browser and visit www.whqr.org to listen online.
