There are no pre-recorded jingles or promotional spots; just two hours of music, punctuated by occasional commentary by The Hermit, whose own radio career began on a small closed-circuit station in the early 70s.
The Hermit takes lot’s of his music directly from vintage vinyl, scratches and all. The rest comes from Compact Disc compilations and re-issues of original albums, all taken from the Hermit’s personal collection.
Commentary is centered on the music itself: artist histories, contextual information, anecdotes, personal memories and occasional forays into how the music of the psychedelic era relates to today’s world. Each week The Hermit writes a blog, The Hermit Rambles about the featured music in the current show as well as his archived show – read about the music: http://www.thehermitrambles.blogspot.com/

Blues Before Sunrise showcases blues as part of a cultural landscape that includes jump and jive, rhythm and blues, swing, doo wop, gospel, comedy, and recitation, and never is the music presented as kitsch or retro fashion in the way that some music has been exploited and trivialized. For Cushing the blues is a living African-American tradition with deep roots.
As a musician himself bearing substantial credentials with Magic Slim and The Teardrops, the Lee Jackson band and Smokey Smothers and The Ice Cream Men, Steve Cushing numbers among his friends and closest associates the artists on this recording-fellow musicians to whom this is a vital, thriving music as well as a means of making a living. This is a great show that GulchRadio is proud to present – join us.
