Host: Cam Hayden
9:00 P.M. to 12:00 A.M. Fridays
The Friday Night Blues Party is a wild ride through the musical landscape of the blues, covering the new and the not-so-new, as well as the local live blues music scene in Alberta. Host Cam Hayden shares his great passion for the blues when he’s not aboard his other great passion: a motorcycle. Helping your weekend to start speeding in the right direction, this program offers the latest blues recordings as well as gems from the CKUA vaults, blues news, concert information and a peek at the history of the blues.
This is music that fills the hole in your soul… makes you want to dance, jump or shout... and moves you in some way. The show aims to provide a balance of all the elements of the blues—instrumentation, energy, styles and geographic origins—and bring it all together so listeners can take a guided trip through the blues without leaving their living room. "Everybody loves the blues,” declares Cam. “Some people just don't know it yet.” Drop on by and hear for yourself.
