The Blues

Brown Street Blues Breakdown joined Shakin' Dave in the WYSO studios for the October 2014 edition of Shake's Hall Pass.  In addition for performing live, the band chatted with Dave about its longstanding history in the Dayton blues scene, lineup changes and more.

On June 11, 2013 legendary guitarist Johnny Smith died at the age of 90.  WYSO's own Shakin' Dave Hussong had the opportunity to study with Smith in 1971 and has this remembrance.

The seasons change so quickly in Colorado.  

Shakin' Dave's tribute to his friend and former bandmate, the late Denny Johnson.

He was a blessed and enlightened individual. He maintained the quintessential Bass/role playing persona There was nothing rote about DJ. He must have been born with a comprehensive insight into the human condition and its obvious contradictions. His maturity, at least from a philosophical musical standpoint was intimidating to this wannabe guitarist/visual artist.
