Fatman Blues

Fatman Blues Saturday Night (fortnightly) 8pm – 10pm

The Fatman presents Blues music that doesn’t give you the Blues.

I present Blues, Rockabilly, Roots, Soul and Ska music on a fortnightly basis.

I cover music from the early American Blues of the 20’s to the Chicago Blues of the 50’s to the fantastic British Blues of the sixties right thru to today’s contemporary Blues music.

I regularly play a strong mix of Australian and New Zealand Blues – anything from Billy Thorpe, Chain, Madderlake, Spectrum, Midge Marsden to Hey Gringo, Chris Wilson, Fiona Boyes, Collards, Green and Gravy, C.W Stoneking and Tex Perkins.

If you dig Louis Jordan, John Lee Hooker, Rory Gallagher, Peter Green, early Rolling Stones, John Mayall, Duke Robillard, Ronnie Earl, Little Charlie & The Nightcats, Charlie Musselwhite, Eric Lindell or any of the Australian musco’s listed above, then listen in every second Saturday nite from 8pm for two hours of great Blues related music – you won’t be disappointed.

Requests and feedback is welcome – so contact me at fatmanblues@southernfm.com.au
