The Ballad of Albert Johnson - the long awaited follow up to the award winning Cigar Store album. Over 50 minutes of new Blues classics, stomping swamp boogies, classic R&B, Acadian swing, Memphis soul, and cutting edge barn burners. The Smoke Wagon Blues Band continue their legacy with tales of triumph and misadventure from New Orleans  to the Yukon. This album will get you on your feet and remind you of a time when legends were celebrated through music and story-telling. 


We hope you can listen in, the show airs at various times throughout the week ( See Schedule )

The station has always remained commercial free, ensuring we never interrupt the music we play with annoying adverts. All our music is hand picked, we have no one pulling our strings, 

so you can expect to hear artists that you might never have been exposed to in a vast array of genres, but in this very difficult time, we need your help.

We ask you kindly to consider making a donation to ensure the station remains operational, continuing to support artists around the world in THEIR time of need.

Be assured your donation will go directly to Blues & Roots Radio's ongoing operational costs. 

No matter how large or small the contribution, you will be helping to keep us online as an essential link between musicians, listeners and music lovers around the world.
