We started with Keb' Mo' this morning in honor of his Hallmark movie "Signed, Sealed and Delivered: Higher Ground". Keb's music was the soundtrack and he also had a substantial role. So, our lead song put us in a low down and dirty track and we proceeded from there. That's how we host a Rendezvous with the Blues!

A little Black Coffee, a lot of great blues... that's how we do Thursdays here on WRFG! Our Rendezvous with the Blues had some old favorites and lots of new music. Congratulations to the Grammy winners: Bobby Rush's "Porcupine Meat" for Best Traditional Blues Album, Fantastic Negrito's "The Last Days Of Oakland" for Best Contemporary Blues Album, and William Bell's "This is Where I Live" for Best Americana Album. I hope you enjoyed and found meaningful the poem, "The Blues" by Nikki Giovanni from the current issue of Oxford American magazine. It's the southern music issue all about the blues on your news stands now (under literary, not music, category).

As the International Blues Challenge is underway in Memphis, it's a great time to remember that blues is indeed "All Around the World". We wish Atlanta's representatives, Rae and the Royal Peacocks (band), Dos Blues Guys (duo), and Garrett Collins (youth), the best of luck. We know you'll do us proud.

There was lots of new music again today. It's still coming in fast and furious and we want you to sample it all!

However, we don't want to forget the "down home" blues. An excerpt from the current issue of Oxford American, their Southern Music issue No. 18, and an article that talks about a grandmother's juke joint and the jukebox that featured Malaco Records was a perfect addition to the morning.
