Blues Moon Radio Playlist Oct. 18, 2011 - Blues fests and Bday festivities!

Good evening, Blues Lovers!

Tonight we are going to play music from artists who will be performing at the Columbia Blues Festival this Saturday, Oct. 22 (see blog post below for details and links).

Then we'll close out the second hour with the second half of October's birthdays. Lots of great music - much of which has yet to be heard on WUSC and Blues Moon Radio before (some are repeats, but I hope not within the past five years - we aim to bring you fresh rosters each week).

Headlining the Columbia Blues Fest this year is Leo Kottke, who tells wonderful tales with his dextrous fingers. He has a song called June Bug and I have a friend, who happens to be small and furry and meows, by that name.  So, you won't mind if - in my mind - we dediCATe the festival to her, will you? I KNEW y'all would understand. Even RockyDawg loves June Bug!

Playlist for Oct. 18, 2011:

Leo Kottke - June Bug b/w The Last Steam Engine Train b/w Sweet Louise
