Band members Dennis Bosley and Danny Meyers met when both played in an early incarnation of the Dave Chastain Band.  When members of that band went their own ways, Bosley and Myers created "Rooster Alley." 

Though the band has been an active part of the central Illinois live music scene for nearly a quarter century, their recordings are few and far between. 

WGLT's Jon Norton caught up with both founding members to talk about the just released album "Cock-A-Doodle-Doo," their first in almost 15 years.  They also talk about the future of blues, and the genesis of the band's name.
