The Professor’s Honor Roll – The Best of 2016!
This is an excerpt from John Porter’s blog post Professor Johnny P’s Juke Joint. I am so very honored and humbled that No Money Down was included on this year’s list. There are so many great artists and albums here keeping the blues alive, I’m just grateful I was able to be a part of it once again. Thank you. – David “Wild Child” Burgin
No Money Down: The Professor’s Honor Roll – The Best of 2016!
Just as so many newcomers make their debut, I enjoy hearing those performers who have taken time away from the industry return and share their experiences with us. For some, the reasons may include burnout, while for others the reasons may be more personal and pressing. Whatever the reason, I’m just glad to have them back making great music.
No Money Down by David Burgin. Burgin was the “go-to” guy for harp players back in the ‘70’s. He played on dozens of albums that are probably in your record collection, and even with a successful combo with his friend Roy Rogers going, he put it all behind and walked away from the business. He’s returned with a swinging blues filled album. For me, he’s still the “go-to: guy!

Time for the Blues w/ Henry Cook & John Porter
Time for the Blues is a retrospective of all blues music and is produced and hosted by John Porter and Henry Cook. The program focuses on specific artists and various themes in the blues, especially featuring major contributors such as: Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Howlin’ Wolf, Charlie Musselwhite and John Lee Hooker, among many others.
