Blues Moon Radio Show Playlist for Tuesday May 5, 2008

This week's show is based on some May 5 birthdays... also May, Days, Rain, Crawdaddies and Rides (in honor of this past Saturday's Crawfish Festival on Rosewood Drive in Columbia, S.C., which had a little of all of that).

The computer at the station has been offline, so I'm posting in advance the planned playlist, however I'll be adding some tributes to Jay Miller of Excello Records... random whimsy will dictate that when Tuesday 6-8 p.m. arrives.

Refresh your screen often - the computer is working and we're updating as we go with tidbits and new info! :)

Next week, the show extends to summer hours (6-9 p.m.).
