show 122 – Preacherboy

Preacherboy, blues man from NYC, was a damn fine sport — playing songs and taking care of the air while I took care of phone calls for pledge drive.

His National guitar was beautiful – wish I had snapped a photo of it.

I’ve had alot of genres featured on Hello Cruel World, but never Blues — and never with a slide. I truly dig the sound of slide guitar blues.

Here’s how it all went down:
