Blues Moon Radio show Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2015: Guest John Sherrer

This week's Blues Moon Radio show features a couple of special events:

First, we're honored to have a special guest on this week's show (Tuesday, Nov. 17th), John Sherrer, Jr., of the Historic Columbia Foundation and author of Remembering Columbia, part of the Images of America Series from Arcadia Publishing.

He'll be sharing stories about the book and the iconic photographs in it.

Next, for you "foodies," (and aren't we all fans of food, after all?) we'll feature songs about food and eating, in preparation for Thanksgiving.

Tune back here later for more updates about the show and song listings.
