Seeing the new -- to me -- band, Royal Johnson Tuesday at Darwin's do their version of "Dying Crapshooters Blues" made me want to hear some Blind Willie McTell, so that was the inspiration of the start this morning. With William Bell headed to City Winery Thursday night, it would just highlight the broad spectrum of Blues, R&B, and Soul available live here in Atlanta and how glorious it is to go out and partake in all of it. I hope you hear some live music this weekend.

With the Georgia Blues and Roots Festival put on by the Atlanta Blues Society on October 1st at the Mable House Amphitheatre, there's certainly a great opportunity to hear quality performers in one big, big day. Check it out: http://www.gabluesnroots.org/

And as a final thought... just how short does a dress have to be to be too short for Bobby Rush?

I always enjoy the Thursday before the Labor Day Blues BBQ... the anticipation of a day of great music, seeing all my blues friends (some of whom I may not have seen since the year before), and generally having a wonderful day. It was a pleasure to play the music of the folks who'll be at the BBQ. In addition we had a chance to chat with Jeannie and Mike Edwards of the band Sole Travelers, so find out a bit about their backgrounds and how they came to be as a new Atlanta Blues band.

Thanks to the Atlanta Blues Society, Big Green Egg, and Echota Home Inspections for their support of this year's event. Their contributions go toward the expense of the event so that YOUR contribution goes toward the operating funds of WRFG. Thanks for supporting community radio!

Today's a big birthday for Atlanta Blues fans to celebrate... Mr. Eddie Tigner was born on this day in 1926 in Macon, GA. He's traveled the world with his blues, but aren't we lucky that he returned to Atlanta to stay and play for us! There will be big celebrations for Eddie's 90th birthday at Fat Matt's tonight and Northside Friday. So, it's only appropriate that we started and ended with music from Eddie's very fine 2nd Music Maker release, Slippin' In.

I've been listening to a lot of new music this week, so we featured that, but I hope I put in enough familiar tunes to make the discriminating listener happy that you joined me for our Rendezvous with the Blues.

Whew! Back on Good Morning Blues part I this morning!

I took note of blues birthdays happening today and Saturday: Roy Rogers, Mike Bloomfield, and Junior Kimbrough today and Buddy Guy, Big Jack Johnson, and Otis Taylor Saturday. Perhaps if you have a child whose birthday falls on one of those days, you might want to buy him or her a guitar and some Buddy Guy records (not to mention the rest)!

I was especially pleased to remember Big Jack Johnson. I've already really liked his song "We Got to Stop This Killing". Too bad, in today's climate, that Big Jack isn't still around spreading that message!

It was my pleasure to host GMBII this morning. I had a whole different audience, I believe, since most who listen during 6-8, don't listen 8-10 and vice versa.

Our final Thursday of the summer pledge drive. The phones were a bit quiet compared to the first two weeks, but that's ok. As we say each time... not amount is too small to contribute to WRFG's bottom line, so I appreciate the $187 we raised even more.

This morning we asked you to stand up and be counted for WRFG and you came through! We raised $675 towards WRFG's expenses and to help our station stay independent and vital. There's one more round to go, though; we aren't done yet. If you haven't yet made your pledge to WRFG for 2016, consider a "sustaining pledge", i.e. X number of dollars every month on a credit card. It's a great way to support your station and is easy on your budget at the same time! I'll be listening for your call next Thursday!

I don't know if it will be the same, though. What fun having Black Jack of Tuesday's Good Morning Blues and George Klein, co-president of the Atlanta Blues Society, in the studio this morning. Thanks guys!

** Playlist for Thursday, July 7, 2016 **

This morning we played for you Blues All Stars of the past and present as we approach the MLB All Star game next week. We were looking for "All Stars" to step up and make a contribution to WRFG during this our fist week of the summer pledge drive. We had some "base hits" and some "home runs" in contributions this morning for a grand total of $839.30! Thank you! These "scores" go a long way towards WRFG's expenses and help our station stay independent and vital. Thanks also for Judith for coming in and helping with the phones.

We're not done; if you didn't have the opportunity to pledge this week, please do so in the next two weeks of this drive. I'll be listening for your calls!
