To contact me: send email to murphyssaloon (at) gmail (dot) com. You can also contact me through: Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. My Flickr photo collection is here. My Google profile is here. You can read items I share in Google Reader here. You are invited to write reviews of Murphy's Saloon Blues Podcast in the iTunes Music Store.
Primary sources of information about the blues: The Blues Foundation and the Delta Blues Museum; be sure to download and listen to the DBM's top-notch (and free) podcast, the Uncensored History of the Blues; BluesRevue.com, the online home of Blues Revue magazine; TheBluesBlast.com; BigCityBluesMag.com, the online home of Big City Blues magazine; and BluesCritic.com.
Recommended reading: No Depression may have stopped publishing as an ink-on-paper magazine, but their website is as active as ever, and is a don't-miss-it source for news and reviews of blues and other subgenres of American roots music. Today's Chicago Blues (Amazon link) by Karen Hanson, an excellent guide to all things blues in present-day Chicago. Karen also blogs about the blues at Today's Chicago Blues.
(Something noteworthy being done by a hard working and very talented friend of mine: Flamenco Chicago)

Y'know all the links to a variety of things I put at the end of the show notes for each episode? That whole block in each show notes post has gotten waaaay longer than it should be.
Therefore, the long-standing links are all going to take up residence in this category, and I'll add new posts in this category as I find more interesting things to which I want to link.
