Keeping the blues alive, one gig at a time

Hosted by

In this hot summer full of social unrest and so much loss, the blues are more relevant than ever. Enter the The Reverend Shawn Amos, an Angeleno singer-songwriter who plays covers of Prince, Howlin' Wolf and everything in between in his kitchen and at restaurants around town. He releases a new performance on his YouTube channel, Kitchen Table Blues, at 7am every Sunday. On this week's show, Amos talks to us about what inspired him to throw food into his musical mix and shares memories working for his dad's cookie company, Famous Amos.
