Kids - it's a crazy week here in BluesMoonVille... got a great show tonight - but will be honest... it's FUNdraiser week and we'll be asking for money to keep our station going - and to be honest, it's a student station and they keep the oldsters around in part because we play a ROCKIN' show with lots of history and info that fits our educational licensing requirements, but also because we tend to rake in enough dough to subsidize our airtime. So... help a girl grow her show from 22 to 23... support WUSC to the fullest extent the law and yer wallet allows. We will rock you with some great tunes tonight... 6 p.m. ET/USA.
If you donate online, <www.wusc.sc.edu> please comment in support of Blues Moon Radio... it helps me keep my slot if they can track the source of the donation to Blues Moon listeners... :) Thank you all... and if your only donation is to keep listening and making nice comments... that makes a great difference, too. I know times are hard for so many and I hope we all come out soon on the other side of these hard time Blues. :)
Hugs from Clair DeLune and RockyDawg, from Blues Moon Radio

In other news, thanks to dear friend, Rocky Faith (not RockyDawg... but two Rocks are better than one), the Rock Doc for guest hosting tonight's show... and a VERY special happy birthday to Miss Charlotte Valentine. Smart, gorgeous, funny and talented. I'd hate her if we weren't besties! She's the "Got It All" gal. Festivities will abound!
Find happiness where you can, my friends... it grows best if it is picked when it is blossoming.
I am grateful for my great listeners and supporters and friends!
