In December of 2000 the program expanded once again to 8pm to midnight. From its beginnings in 1992, "Nothin' But The Blues" has remained focused on the best in current and classic blues in all styles including Delta, Piedmont, Chicago and Texas. "Nothin' But The Blues" utilizes over 3,000 CD's and LP's with requests always welcome.

In 1997, "Mojo the Blues Cat" was introduced as the musical inspiration of great blues and remains the offical mascot of "Nothin' But The Blues." T-shirts were designed which featured Mojo "playing guitar and singin' the blues."

A true passion for the blues, Hitchcock also spends his time booking blues performers for the Americana Crossroads Live and Sundown at Moonlight Concert Series, as well as the annual Cave Run Rock'n Blues'n BBQ Festival, all held in Morehead (KY).
