LOST in the Blues Tuesday, May 25, 2010

Tonight's Blues Moon Radio show is entitled LOST in the Blues (you should be hearing several trumpets cascade down a scale quickly, followed by "Bad Robot" if you get the gist of my theme; but never fear, if you don't you will still be able to enjoy the show). Yes, Clair DeLune is a proud LOSTIE and has been since the premiere - having never missed a show.

This Blues Music tribute will run Tuesday, May 25, 2010 from 6-9 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time USA (just until the hour of silence I will maintain in memory of my favorite show having ended with a fabulous finale Sunday).

TO LISTEN ONLINE: you can follow the links to stream and listen at http://www.wusc.sc.edu/ - if you are a first time listener, you will want to set up your realplayer or other listening device (Itunes, etc) in advance.
TO LISTEN IN COLUMBIA SC: tune to 90.5 FM or HD1 Columbia.
