Had a long awaited radio interview with harmonica man Curtis Blake to promote his upcoming gig with Greasy Gravy at McCarron's Pub in St. Paul on December 13th, 2014. My band, "Lady J Griot & Her Root Doctors" will be the opening act for this event. Showtime 7:00pm on Saturday night December 13th, 2014. As Curtis said during the interview: "two great bands with two great names".  So, you'll be able to get greasy and magical all on the same night.

Had guests play live in the studio today. The "Blackwater Blues Band" who are the winners of the IBC Youth Showcase heading to Memphis to represent Minnesota in January 2015.


This Tues, December 23rd, I celebrated the holidays and the holy days by taking the listeners back in the day to the Christmases I experienced growing up in St. Paul. I played old school tunes and together the audience and I sent up a joyful noise so that, collectively, we can bring about Peace on Earth!


Had an interview in the studio this Tuesday with vocalist and producer Jay Bee from JB & The Routine who appear every Tuesday night at the Minnesota Music Cafe. We talked about a rally for a badly injured musician, saxophone man Pat Macken, who was hit by a car a month ago. This Sunday, January 4th, there will be a gathering of musicians at MMC to send our love and support to Pat and his family as he undergoes yet more surgery. The event is called "Minnesota Music Rally for Pat Macken". More info at Caring
