Summertime Blues/Back to the Beach


July 11th, 2001 ~ Get out of your summer funk by hearing some cool blues live in the studio with Mississippi's Big Jack Johnson on guitar. And keep cool in conversation with elder dudes of the California surf scene regarding the aesthetics of their sport and the music that goes with it. Also beach-wear and music from Belize's reef islands, and songs that keep an ear on summer.
