British Blues Awards – Results

The results have now been announced, so I can reveal them for you here!

I should add that the Blues Broadcaster of the Year went to Paul Jones at Radio Two. Runner-Up was my friend GARY GRAINGER and The Blues Show at BishopFM / KCOR. Massive congratulations to Gary, who has helped me no end – I guess the reality is, Gary is the winner in the non-national, non-professional broadcaster list!! Edit: Just found that Tim Aves ‘The Blues Is Back’ on SaintFM, came third in this one, so well done Tim and your team for this!

    • Hi Kevin – thanks for popping by! Although I’m sure it says that Chantel won that category! ( Hope so anyway, as it was cut and pasted straight from the Blues Awards people themselves! )
