Blues Moon Radio show playlist July 28, 2009

Thanks for tuning in to tonight's Blues Moon Radio Show, folks... keep refreshing your screen to see the latest updates to the playlist between 6-9 p.m. ET (USA).

A lot of you have mothers. Many many of you, in fact. Some of you might no longer have mothers.

This show is for all of y'all... it's about Mama, Mom, Mommy, Mother, Marmie... whatever pet name you might call her.

It's a tribute to a person who was happy to sacrifice her life's dreams just for a moment of happiness for her child.
It's a tribute to a person who left a huge hole in her child's heart when she had to go.
It's about heart and soul.
It's about uncompromising, unconditional love.
It's about longing for that comfort and understanding that only she could give.
It's about the Blues you get when you know she cannot ever come back.
It's about the joy you feel when you learn she is, inextricably, the best part of you.

It's about Mother.
Yours and mine - but I'll raise my toast to Lucille...

Hope you enjoyed tonight's show... if your Mom is living, give her a call - or better yet, go see her, give her a big hug and a kiss and let her know you appreciate all she did for you; tell her you are sorry (doesn't matter what for - you owe her at least one good heartfelt apology) and that you will always love her... it will make her happy now and both of you happy forever...

be sweet, y'all...
