Blues Moon Radio for May 17, 2016

Tonight's show features some stormy weather and shameful behavior. Yes. Shameful.

That makes the blues "The Blues!"

We will kick off the show with one of my favorite Blues characters:

Wynonie Harris – Stormy Night Blues: 
Mr. Blues, as he was known… a Nebraska native whose early influences in the Midwest included Jimmy Rushing and Big Joe Turner (a true-blues shouter’s Blues Shouter). His first NYC break came from Lucky Millender who hired him. He went on to influence many, including Elvis Presley… Harris was known for his sly, Playboy ways, in addition to his singing and dancing skills, and was extremely smooth and very popular with women.
The rest of the show will come from the list, below, and we'll cherry pick some goodies from past weeks that we didn't have time to play.
Cuts 10 and 11 fall into our new genre addition of Garage band music from the 60s - not Blues, but a fun departure - for kicks! Enjoy... I think you will!
 On an Americana note... so sorry we lost Guy Clark today - his bride of 40 years predeceased him and I'm sure awaited his arrival with open arms.

Thanks as always for tuning in each Tuesday from 6-8 p.m. at www.wusc.sc.edu
Clair DeLune and RockyDawg, Blues Defender!

As always we thank our underwriters, who help bring great music to the Midlands, because we could not imagine our show without their input and support:  Papa Jazz Record Shoppe, the UU Coffeehouse and California Republic Stand Up Paddleboards in Leesville near Lake Murray.
