Monuments in Ruin, Ch. 184

This week we return with a companion episode for the previous gospel and blues show. Episode 184 keeps that vibe shifting forward to begin tapping into some darker lyric content and slowly bring in a little bit of a rock element to really solidify the overall sadness and emotion that blues can deliver. New show every Monday at 9pm Eastern.

Originally aired on on July 12th, 2021.
Produced and edited by Bobby Rayfield for broadcast on the TrendKill Radio Network.
