Weekend Blues

Rockabilly, punk, surf & blues are more than musical genres. For many they represent a certain attitude, outlook and even… a way of life. Those who subscribe to such an outlook accept no substitutes or imposters. That’s where The Vibro Kings come in. This Oklahoma-based trio’s music reflects a genuine appreciation for the aforementioned genres and the kind of ethos each tends to reflect. These guys are serious about their craft and what it says about them & their fans.

The Lucky Losers

The Lucky Losers is a band featuring vocalist Cathy Lemons and vocalist/ harmonica ace Phil Berkowitz.Their music is a throwback to the hybrid of soul, blues, rock, gospel, and country that emerged in the late 1960’s - with harmonies reminiscent of Delaney and Bonnie. 

"Hardluck Jim"
KGOU Radio

This is the Manager’s Minute.

This fall we are celebrating a milestone for a person who has become an institution at KGOU.

KGOU Program Director Jim Johnson is marking 25 years – a quarter of a century – behind the microphone as producer and host of The Weekend Blues.

For a lot of us, Hardluck Jim IS the blues.

He’s taught us about the artists, the songs, the history and the state of mind that make blues music a distinctly American art form. He also mixes in some R&B, jazz and more, just to change the pace.
