The Walkin' Has Begun on tonight's Blues Moon Radio Jan. 24, 2017

As your host, Clair DeLune, always says, "Tuesday is Bluesday!"

We have a great show lined up for tonight and it kicks off with a great song "The Talkin' Is Over - the Walkin' Has Begun," by the growly and gritty Johnny Sansone.

Got some big leaps to make to get past the grip of evil, so the rest of the theme is to inspire everyone in their efforts to "be nice, and do right" and jump over evil so as not to let it "gitcha!" Evil comes in large AND small ways you know. The Blues will teach you that you cannot close your eyes to evil or it grows unfettered.

We are also celebrating our Artist of the Week, Etta James, with thanks to our segment underwriter, WordofMouthProductions.org, who bring great music to the Midlands!

And a tip of the felt Tam to SC's own NEA Heritage Fellow, Drink Small, whose 84th birthday takes place on 1/28!  The link is to an interview I set up between him and the NEA two years ago, and was asked to transcribe... it was 10,000 words and in Drink's deeply Southern drawl, so I linked to the transcription for you non-Suthnuhs. You are welcome!
