CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

CBS John-Alex Mason Scholarship Benefit Friday, December 2 at 8:00pm, Road 34 Bike Shop


88.9FM KRFC, Fort Collins Presents the inaugural John-Alex Mason Scholarship Fund Benefit. The fund has been developed by the Colorado Blues Society with the blessing of John-Alex's family to further the blues music education of young Colorado artists. We can't think of a better way for our community to honor his memory and continue the educational work John-Alex found so important.

 John-Alex Mason died as a result of complications from cancer surgery. He was only 35. John-Alex Mason was one of those artists that you would look to as a keeper of the flame, as he seemed to represent his generation so beautifully. Young, aspiring and wonderfully talented, he released 6 albums in his short life. He made his name as early as 2001, when he won the Telluride Acoustic Blues Competition. He appeared in music festivals all over the country and it seemed inevitable that his time of recognition was in the near future. This sadly was not to be.

  1. I'm in a state of shock B-man...we played with John at the Juke Joint Festival in Mississippi last April. So young....what a damned shame.
