Kicking off 28th year with 7-11 Blues

Welcome to the first show of the 28th year of Blues Moon Radio!

We're glad to have you join us... it's a "convenient" date ... 7-11 so we've promised to play songs to address the convenience store itself, then change over to the gambling references (seven come eleven); then dice ... and so forth.

Our Papa Jazz Record Shoppe Artist of the Month is Willie Dixon (7/1/1915) and our Word of Mouth Productions' Artist of the Week is James Cotton (7/1/1935), and both are in tribute to our loyal co-host, RockyDawg Blues Defender, on his birthday!

Love that handsome boy. Good boy, RockStar!

It is also a very important time in the year for all my German Shepherd co-host(s) who were born in early July... not only my beloved RockyDawg but our beautiful Lawdy Miss Clawdy as well, so we'll do our annual tribute to them; and to their granddaddy GSD predecessor from long ago with some "easy rider" songs because he went everywhere with me.

That love never dies, does it - even when they are long gone?

So, get ready to ROCK(yDawg) and ROLL (those dice of life) as we kick off the 28th year of Blues Moon Radio. Please follow this blog (click the BLUE "FOLLOW" button to the left under the icons of followers so you will be updated auto-MAGICALLY whenever we have programming news to share) and we welcome you to visit us on Facebook and like our pages there: Blues Moon Radio, South Carolina Blues and Music of the Carolinas as well as those of our supporters, whom you will find below.

Thanks to all the musicians (living or dead) who make our show possible - and to our listeners, who make this educational radio show worthwhile. Please tune in each Tuesday from 6-8 p.m. at (then click listen to stream the show) as well as other times of the week for unique programming.


Tribute to 27 years on the air;
to my valiant co-hosts' birthdays;
and the start of Blues Moon Radio's 28th year!
Tribute to 7-11 - and... yeah.. there's that gambling thing.

As always we thank our long-time underwriters, who help bring great music to the Midlands all year around, because we could not imagine our show without their input and support:  Papa Jazz Record Shoppe and Word of Mouth Productions. You can link to these orgs by clicking on the visuals...
