So much excellent new music has headed my way and I love sharing it with you on our Rendezvous with the Blues.

We also paused to remember Freedom Summer, fifty years ago this month, June 1964. So much violence accompanied that summer and the efforts to register African-Americans in Mississippi to vote. "Color Blind Angels" from Robin Rogers took that big story and gave us a one person narrative that brought it home.
