Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Rupert Burley (Dynamic Agency): "BSH just goes from strength to strength".

'606' Club: "A toast to Lance Liddle of the terrific jazz blog 'Bebop Spoken Here'"

Jazz for Free Thinkers @ Sage Gateshead

BBC Radio 3’s Free Thinking Festival takes place at Sage Gateshead this weekend (Nov 6-8). The annual event gathers together free thinkers, the curious and the bemused. This year Jazz Record Requests pops-up on the concourse. You are welcome to attend a live broadcast of the programme on Saturday at 4:00pm. Please arrive fifteen minutes before Alyn Shipton and guests go ‘live’. One request is to hear Barbara Thompson and another listener wants to hear Henry Grimes. You may spot a familiar face!
Following JRR at five o’clock on Radio 3 is Jazz Line-Up. A pre-London Jazz Festival special, there should be something worth listening to. At midnight, again on Radio 3, the subject of Geoffrey Smith’s Jazz is Dizzy Gillespie.
Finally, on Monday over on Radio 2, Paul Jones will be playing new releases including a track from County Durham’s blues-rock guitarist Mitch Laddie.
