Blues Moon Radio playlist for June 29, 2010

Blues Moon Playlist June 29, 2010

Welcome to tonight's show... the playlist will be updated during the show, so refresh regularly between the hours of 6-9 on Tuesday... 

Sorry to have taken a "sick" day last week... y'all can "dock my pay..." :) but I know you won't!

And we'll do the featured artist of last week this week.  

The big news (for me, anyway) is that tonight marks the end of my 20th year and the start of my third decade at WUSC doing the Blues Moon radio show. I've got a long list of folks to thank, but you know who you are (everyone through the years at USC and WUSC included)... it's been amazing and I hope I live long enough to celebrate my billionth second as host (somewhere in year 32) as well as my 33&1/3rd anniversary (that would be an all LP records show, of course!) ... and more ideas for fun.

But for now... sit back, dry off (from the rain, or just being outside) and put your feet up - let me take you through some great music this evening. 

Featured artist of the week is Ella Johnson, Darlington SC native, who was born 6/22 - either in 1917 or 1923. We'll kick off the show with two of her burners... one of which was recorded with her brother's band in New York City.
