Badass Blues Debuts In Lake Havasu
Sanford Cohen’s River Rat Radio has launched Blues “Badass Blues Radio” 101.7 KXBB Cienega Springs/Lake Havasu City AZ.
The new format makes KXBB one of the only full-powered commercial Blues stations in the country. In a blog post explaining the new format Cohen writes, “Which brings us to the present day and why BADASS BLUES is so much of a “thank you” to all the great artists. Little Walter, Clarence “Frogman” Henry, Koko Taylor, Big Mama Thornton, Bonnie Raitt, Dr. John, Ray Charles, J. Geils Band, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Paul Rodgers, they’re all here with a lot more to come. After owning and operating radio stations since 1985, this was the time to create a tribute to the good feelings Terry and I have been blessed with from all the artists we have encountered over the years, both in concert and in person.”
