Red, White & Blues

Mondays 8 pm-10:30pm

Since March 1980 as a teenager, Brian has been spinning the Blues on KRCL. From the studio, broadcasting live Blues remotely back in the day, local artists, national, new, old, boogie woogie, West Coast, swing, acoustic, electric, Texas and Chicago Blues, and everything in between, it's all here - though the focus is on new Blues, currently touring Blues artists.  As Utah Blues Society President Emeritus and Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise Emcee, Brian scours the globe to bring you the best in Blues. As B.B. King says in kicking off Brian's show every Monday night at 8, "Stay tuned, because Brian's gonna blow your mind away with the blues!" AND, on Jan. 16, 2018, Brian was revered with the highest honor in the Blues world, the "Keeping The Blues Alive" award from The Blues Foundation in Memphis. Congrats on this prestigious lifetime award Brian!
