NEW SHOW! Digging Deeper with Fatt Max, every first Weds of each month

Lets go Digging Deeper with Fatt Max - a monthly journey through the roots of the blues. Digging Deeper is a brand new show on The Blues Room every first Wednesday of each month. Fatt Max will explore where it all started and bring you a little something different thrown in. He'll dust off those old, scratchy recordings from years ago, and feature the early pioneers of the blues. Its time to go back in time, its time to start Digging Deeper! Join us for the debut of Digging Deeper, Wednesday 2nd January, 2019. 9pm on Free FM89.0 and podcast at www.thebluesroom.blogspot.com
