The holidays are over -- back to work for many... if not today, then Monday. It was fun, though, while it lasted. I ended my celebrations with the North Mississippi Allstars and Lightnin' Malcolm. What a way to go! Guess UK Bob had way too much fun too, because I was able to stay with you for not only GMBI but the first hour of GMBII. Thanks to Steve K for coming in to relieve me.

Well, it's that time of year -- time to start mixing in a little Christmas Blues. I hope you enjoyed that and our visit with up and coming blues artist Brandon Santini. He called in advance of his show this weekend to share with us the excitement of his two Blues Music Awards nominations, one for Contemporary Blues Album for This Time Another Year and one for Instrumentalist - Harmonica. I guess I won't be able to call him "up and coming" any longer!

Of course, this season will be forever tinged with sadness at the loss of Chick Willis -- a special man, musician and a great friend of WRFG.
