Circumstances are conspiring to keep me from doing the radio show this evening... don't you fret... I'll be back next week!

Freedom, Puppy Dawgs, BBQ and Blues on July 5, 2016 Blues Moon Radio

Freedom, Puppy Dawgs, BBQ and Blues
July 5, 2016 Blues Moon Radio playlist and info


On Tuesday's show we will celebrate 240 years of American Independence with two songs about freedom sung by those who have not always been free of prejudice and or persecution - my hope is that, within my lifetime,  everyone can live in peace, enjoy some well-earned prosperity and experience the liberty envisioned by our forefathers in the Declaration of Independence.

Part two: Pups! Two of my German Shepherds (although Claudette insisted she was Alsatian, NOT GSD) have a birthday at this time, so we always dedicate songs to her and to Rocky... beloved pets!

Part three: A few of the many Blues bands that will perform for you free at the annual Festival of Discovery in Greenwood (not Greenville) SC this weekend. What you will discover is a BBQ cookoff contest and great Blues for NO gate fee! Cannot beat that... make the drive to Greenwood for a great time!

Sorry we did not make last week's show... we had the Highway Blues... still recovering from the accident, but am so glad to survive, be alive, and still have a chance to thrive... so I promise to bring y'all a great show Tuesday 6-8 p.m. ET/USA on WUSC-FM ... stream at www.wusc.sc.edu. [Follow links on that page to listen.]

No Blues Moon Radio for Tuesday, June 28, 2016



No show tonight, folks, sorry!

I am recovering from an accident and hope to be much improved soon!

Planning to return July 5th with a celebration of my valiant co-host, RockyDawg Blues Defender who celebrates his birthday mid-summer, and kick off the beginning of my 27th year on the air!

 Thanks for tuning in to any or all of the 1225-ish [+/-] shows so far!

Grateful to still be among the living so I can HAVE and PLAY the Blues! :)
 Wishing you all the best from your Blues pals,
Clair DeLune and the indomitable Rocky!

Welcome to the author of Encyclopedia of SC Blues and Jazz


Blues Moon Radio and Clair DeLune are excited to welcome the author of the Encyclopedia of SC Jazz & Blues (USC PRESS), Benjamin Franklin V, Ph.D., on Tuesday's show, June 21st, 2016.

As a fellow author [of South Carolina Blues, on Arcadia Publishing], it is both an honor and a thrill to have Ben Franklin, who just released the Encyclopedia of South Carolina Jazz & Blues as our guest host for the entire two-hour show, which will feature South Carolina musicians and stories and biographies from his amazingly detailed book that took five years to compile!

During Ben's and my planning luncheon yesterday, I exclaimed how much I wished his book had come out when I began teaching Blues history... but no matter how long it took, it is worth it. I've reviewed the book for a publication and highly recommend it for any history, music and/or SC lover.

Please join us as we take a tour back in time - nearly a century's worth of music from our own Sandlapper musicians. This show is going to be more fun than the law allows in most states... and I'll be in a state of euphoria!

Enjoy these wonderful SC artists on Tuesday, June 21, 2016 from 6-8 p.m. on WUSC-FM at www.wusc.sc.edu.

 
Many thanks to Dr. Franklin for sharing his music lore - and we are excited to have him back on the airwaves of WUSC, where his long-running jazz how originated decades ago. Thanks you to as well for lending us your ears each "Tuesday Bluesday"...
Clair DeLune and RockyDawg Blues Defender ( who will be playing along on the mouth harp).
