Elwood Blues, host of the nationally
syndicated House of Blues Radio Hour, was
recently spotted in the Pittsburgh vicinity driving his battered
old Cadillac from clubs to restaurants to record stores. As Ernie,
a night shift gas station attendant, reported it, Elwood announced
to anyone with ears that he was on a mission from God
in search of Strange Brew. Luckily, Ernie is
a music fan and understood that the venerable bluesman was in
search of Pittsburghs favorite blues band Strange
Brew, and did not direct the weary searcher to the nearest
liquor store, as others had mistakenly done.
After waxing enthusiastically about Lost and Broken Hearted, Elwood explained that he had selected Lies from the new CD as his Pick-of-the-Week for HOBs Radio Hour for the broadcast which premiers on Tuesday, July 5th. On that date and throughout the following weekend, listeners in over 180 markets from coast-to-coast and beyond will have an opportunity to tune in and discover why the busy Mr. Blues went in such dogged pursuit of Strange Brew.
