Blind Derek steers "The Mystery Train"

Posted By on Thu, Apr 2, 2009 at 2:00 PM



Call it another reason Fayetteville rules. Before he moves to Canada, the homie Derek Jenkins (the king of the video promo) is resurrecting his "Mystery Train" radio show for DJ sets at the Smoke and Barrel in Fayetteville at 8 p.m. on the first and last Sundays in April (so this Sunday). The idea, I think, is that he'll podcast later.

Get an audio preview with his new mix, "A Treasury of Musical Gibberish." It's awesome.

And read the pitch for the DJ sets after the jump.

The Mystery Train hauls sixteen coaches of raunchy decadence and earthy heartache, & Blind Derek Jenkins will be unpacking that musical load live at the Smoke & Barrel Tavern on the first & last Sundays in April.

Go to church in the morning to zero out your sin bill, then head out Sunday night to start racking it right up again.

Featuring Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson, Chuck Willis, Hank Ballard & The Midnighters, Helen Humes, Wynonie Harris, the Johnny Burnette Trio, Ruth Brown, the Liggins Brothers, the Collins Kids, Big Joe Turner, Chuck Berry, Esquerita, Bo Diddley, Roy Milton & His Solid Senders, T-Bone Walker, Sonny Burgess, Louis Jordan, Tiny Bradshaw, Willie Mabon, Faye Adams, Bill Doggett, Roddy Jackson, the Johnny Otis Orchestra, Cab Calloway, Big Mama Thornton, Bull Moose Jackson, Shirley & Lee, Louis Prima, Red Prysock, Camille Howard, The Coasters, Ronnie Self, Don & Dewey, Nellie Lutcher, Sreaming Jay Hawkins, Wanda Jackson, Little Joe & the Thrillers, Wild Jimmy Spruill, Roscoe Gordon, Gene Vincent & His Blue Caps, Huey "Piano" Smith, & every artist who came down with the rockin' pnemonia & the boogie woogie flu in the salad days of steady back beats & driving rhythms.
