This morning's show was a little more acoustic, a little more rootsy... due in some measure to a wonderful show in town this week with Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams, veterans of Levon Helm's band. (Larry also toured with Dylan.) I liked it... maybe that foreshadows even more acoustic blues in the weeks to come. Thanks for joining me for this Rendezvous with the Blues!

With the retirement of Bill and Pat Hudson from WRFG, there's such a big hole to fill. We so appreciate their years of service. We hope to find a new host soon, but in the meantime, the rest of us will be filling in, and it was my pleasure to host the show this week.

I used this opportunity to once again review the BMA nominees for song of the year and to play some more early Sun Records blues. Can you tell I've been reading the Peter Guralnick book on Sam Phillips and Sun Records? Also, we say goodbye to blues and soul singer Otis Clay.
