Today on Music 101 it's all about Blues, Bogans and fan-boys:

The Bluesfest in Coromandel has a stellar line-up, including Buddy Guy, Keb Mo, and Ian Brown from the Stone Roses.

Knave KnixxWhile on Saturday night Rock2Wellington kicks off, including metal flash-backs Ozzy Ozbourne, Kiss, and Poison. We'll get a bit of a run down on all things bogan and glam by Mr Knave Knixx (pictured right).

Also playing Bluesfest, and then on around the country, is alt-country outfit Wilco. Fan-Boy Samuel Flynn Scott (Phoenix Foundation) speaks to Wilco's leading man, Jeff Tweedy.

Mancunian band Elbow talk about their new album 'The Seldom Seen Kid' with uber-fan and RNZ music engineer Andre Upston. The album is described by the band as "love, loss, birth, death, lads and a celebration of friendship by five very old friends'

And hopefully fan Sam Wicks will have a chat to Queens of the Stoneage.

We discuss hypno drones and ambient textures with Sonic Boom/Spectrum/ Spacemen 3 guy Peter Kember ahead of a national tour with Dimmer;

A live session with ex-pat Delaney Davidson and his Ghost Orchestra- expect banjos, accordions, trumpets and lap-steels playing a European blend of Country…… (Kirsten is the honorary fan-boy for this one)

At 4.10 pm the second part of 'The Making of Tuwhare'. - where the poetry of the late Hone Tuwhare is set to contemporary music. Lynn Freeman joins project producer and singer/songwriter Charlotte Yates as she works on her own piece, and meets some of the other contributors; Mahinarangi Tocker, Hinemoana Baker and Goldenhorse. (three parts play after 4pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday)

And definitely lots of rock'n music.
