Blues Moon Returns Jan 10th 2017

We wish you a wonderful and happy holiday season!

Blues Moon Radio is on hiatus while the university takes its winter break, but we will return with more great Blues Moon Radio shows starting on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 with a great show to kick off your new year.

Returning on Jan. 10, 2017 6-8 p.m. ET
Stream the show at
Before we go, we want to remind you of some great gift and concert opportunities in the meantime and thank our listeners for giving me a reason to fight traffic and parking at the university to come to the studio and bring you a live radio show each week - what a great experience it is to share my love of this roots music with you all.

I especially want to thank this year's wonderful underwriters for being so supportive of great music in the Midlands of SC - and streaming around the world - Papa Jazz: Tim Smith and his amazing staff; UU Coffeehouse (now Blue Moon Concerts) and California Republic Stand Up Paddleboards with the amazing Steve Fisher; and our longtime supporters and now underwriters, the phenomenal Geoffrey Graves and all the intrepid volunteers at Word of Mouth Productions. Thank you all from the bottom of my Blues Moon heart to these amazing souls, who are all such great friends!

Looking for that special gift for your music lover?

Papa Jazz Record Shoppe (at ) can help you find even rare titles for your music lover - they also have signed copies of South Carolina Blues (500 year pictorial of blues history in SC, by yours truly, Clair DeLune - shameless plug - LOL). You can also get a copy dedicated in particular to your recipients - and mailed for you - I'll even gift wrap upon request and will do a lovely job - no bad taping, I promise.

See link beneath the concert listings...

Please support great live music - here are some wonderful concerts coming your way:

Johnny Irion (Sat. Dec. 10th)
Jack Williams (Sat. Jan. 7th)

Both will appear at the UU Coffeehouse presented by Blue Moon Concerts.
Tickets and info for those are available via Facebook:

And reminding you again that your gift giving is easy for music lovers - has all your music needs and signed copies of my photographic essay, South Carolina Blues. If they sell out, or you live far away, you can find it at

After this holiday show, Blues Moon Radio will be on winter hiatus until Tuesday, Jan. 10 - see you then or in the meantime, on Facebook!

May your days be merry and bright!

An art poster (11x/17) of the front cover of "South Carolina Blues" is available for sale by your host, Clair DeLune.

  South Carolina Blues books are available from the publisher, and wherever books are sold - in Columbia, signed copies are available from our favorite record shop, Papa Jazz on Greene Street for the cover price of $22 plus tax. And, as always, mail order signed first-editions are available from the author directly by sending a check or money order for $28 dollars (includes the cover price/tax/shipping) to Clair DeLune at POB 5591 Columbia, SC, 29250. Please indicate to whom you would like the book inscribed (please print clearly). A perfect gift for any Sandlapper, or music or history buff - or all three!

Please request gift wrapped (no extra charge, but lots of extra love!) copies if that will help keep your spirits bright!

 An art print of the cover is available for $25, including postage and handling in the continental U.S.

  See you on the air again in January 10th 6-8 p.m. ET on - then click LISTEN.

Hear those sleigh bells ringing? It's Clair DeLune and RawkyDawg, 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; California Republic Stand Up Paddleboards in Leesville near Lake Murray (closed for the season); and Word of Mouth Productions. You can link to these orgs by clicking on the visuals...
