These guidelines ensure that listeners always hear the latest tracks. The station plays deep into CDs (not just one or two ‘featured' cuts) and avoids repeating songs. Because Blues Debut constantly adds newly released CDs and avoids repeats, the mix is different every time a listener returns.
Founded by online blues radio veteran Chophouse, the station and website serve as a focal point for what's new in the blues world – from the songs themselves to news from the studio, listener-submitted photos, interviews, band posters and coming soon, live in-studio performances. As Chop has said, “It's all about getting the music into people's ears”. He further explains, “The blues has a passionate, loyal and global audience, but access is often isolated and local. Blues Debut solves that problem by providing a convenient place, available throughout the world, to discover new artists and hear the latest from familiar acts without having to visit multiple websites.”
Complementing the audio stream, the website will continue to evolve and serve the global blues community, recognizing that everyone wants to help the blues thrive. It's probably the oldest blues truism, “if you're gonna play the blues, you gotta pay your dues”, so Blues Debut proudly pays its royalties and performance fees to the various collecting organizations.
