Blackonblues is, and will always remain free to our listeners.
We care passionately about blues music and we exist to bring you some of the very best music we can find. But It does cost us around £300 per year to make this show happen each and every week. The costs include web hosting, recording and computer equipment. We choose not to run advertisements on our website or show because we don't want to detract from the music. But we would really appreciate some help towards our running costs.
So if you like what you hear, we'd really be grateful for some of your spare change in our blackonblues tip jar. You can give us a one of tip or a regular monthly tip.
Thank you for your support.
Black on Blues is a podcast all about the Blues. From the Delta to Dagenham, if there’s Blues to be heard – its’ blues we will play. We cover the entire spectrum of blues music. We also specialise in women blues artists too and feature them every two weeks.
Kevin Black: has been a newspaper and magazine photo-journalist for 40 years and for the past 23 years has been editor/photographer of the local Tandridge District weekly newspaper group, the County Border News series.
Jason Monty: Jason has a background in all things tech and is responsible for the production of the shows, website and online marketing.
We are now on Stitcher!
