New music from Nick Schnebelen, Tinsley Ellis, and Alexis P. Suter, some previously unreleased Duke Robillard, and a tribute to the Paris terror attacks by Lisa Mann: these are just some of the highlights from the latest edition of FTB Radio.



The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is “I Love You All the Time” by Lisa Mann. The song appears on her brand new album, Hard Times, Bad Decisions. There are numerous, terrific songs that could have been played off this disc; but this track is special for its benefit to the non-profit agency – Sweet Stuff Foundation. “I Love You All the Time” is a song by Eagles of Death Metal, who encouraged artists of all genres to cover the song as a tribute to the victims of the 2015 Paris terror attacks.

It is only one of four songs on this new CD that were not written by Lisa Mann. The album features additional highlights, including the title track, and a special appearance by Kirk Fletcher. You can find out complete details on Hard Times, Bad Decisions, Lisa’s tour schedule, and more online at her official website

2015 releases are beginning to pour into the home for new & independent Blues music, and this episode is an equal split of releases from 2014 and 2015, with many of the 2014 releases being new arrivals themselves.

It all kicks off with Croatian Blues from Tomislav Goluban, follows with a pair of new, unique interpretations of a Robert Johnson classic, and continues throughout the hour with other highlights including two new releases of Tinsley Ellis music, blue-eyed Soul from Lincoln, Nebraska and a new live disc by Brandon Santini.
