Imagine a gig with Rabbit Foot, The Black Tongued Bells, Baby Isaac, Big Creek Slim, David Migden, Paul Lamb, Robert Cray, Billie Holiday, The Tangiers Blues Band, The Blues Brothers, Albert King, Trevor Sewell, The Proof, featuring Paul Cox & Roger Cotton, Beth Hart, The Mighty Boss Cats, Kevin Jordan & Reece Hills, Mark Harrison, Sunday Wilde, Albert Castiglia, Michael Quest, Ray Charles, Joe Bonamassa, and Sonny Boy Williamson.

Live this week in Croydon
THE ANTIDOTE TO AUDIO WALLPAPER.
Interviewing acts playing live in Croydon.
This week's guest is 'Beware This Boy'.
Songs written by Simon Meakin and inspired by the modern folk sound. By breaking many of the rules, Bewarethisboy hope to bring something new to the genre. A combination of foot tapping speed and thoughtful ballad. Band members include Simon Meakin - guitar and vocal Sue mallet - fiddle Stewart Manley - percussion Dave Shepherd - bass, piano and other instruments. Although a new band, Bewarethisboy consists of experienced musicians, determined to have a good time.
This week I interview Emma Lewis from swimming company -Swim Baby Swim which has been established for over 30 years. The founder Anne Hawley is a published author and expert in infant swimming.
They teach in central London and many city centres but have brought their classes to Croydon twice a week since January 2014. These classes are taught by Anne Hawley herself.
Emma feels that many Croydon mums and dads would benefit from knowing more about these classes and the company's ethos and have the opportunity to teach their child to swim under the expertise of Anne Hawley.
Emma is giving away one week's intensive swimming course from 7 - 11 April.
I will also chat to Glen McCready from Coulsden's Stagecoach, an acting, singing and drama workshop for children from 4 - 18 year olds. He will be giving away a two week free trial at their Saturday afternoon main school which runs at Woodcote High School from 2:30 to 5:30pm (26th April & 3rd May 2014). This comprises an hour of Singing, an hour of Dance and an hour of Drama.
With the usual eclectic array of top tunes, dedications and shout-outs it promises to be a great show for parents and non-parents alike.
