He's got the blues. I have the interviews. Together we team up to form BLINTERBLUE, a podcasting robot-pizza-monster who feels unloved and has the need to express his frustration in melancholy verse over a pentatonic melody. Jontavious Willis delivers the best blues performance I've ever seen and joins me at the 2017 Ellnora Guitar Festival.

In the last several years the accomplished luthier Aaron Green has worn several hats, but the hat he likes best is shaped like a guitar (What? Why did I just write this?) because he builds guitars (What’s wrong with me?). Check out my interview with Massachusetts guitar maker and restorer of fine instruments.
