Buddy Guy

This week's Blues Radio Report looks a lot like what we saw last week, only put on shuffle mode. The names are mostly the same but they've swapped places here and there within the Top 20. Marcia Ball is still #1 but Gregg Allman has slipped from #2 to #3. Harry Manx & Kevin Breit have moved up a few notches this week and Smokin' Joe Kubek and Bnois King are exactly where we left them.

I got to see the great Buddy Guy at Ryman Auditorium last week and he played tunes from his Blues Music Award-winning Living Proof along with a few older favorites from his legendary career.
