When's the last time you "Jerry Rigged" or "Jury Rigged" something? My father did it all the time. If he were still with us, he'd be 93 next week. Our first set this morning went out to him and all the other handy men out there!

With Mohammed Ali's passing, the AJC published a list of quotes. There, along with the well known "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee", was one that really got me. "The man who views the world at 50 the same as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life". Life's short, my friends... thus started this morning's Rendezvous with the Blues.

June 10th is Howlin' Wolf's birthday and you know what that makes this, the Thursday closest to his birthday? Wolf Fest 2016! All Wolf, all night! Thanks to Carlos Capote of the Breeze Kings for joining us this morning with all things Wolf Fest. And thank YOU for tuning in.

I went to Memphis last week for the Blues Music Awards. It was a wonderful night of music and recognition, but that's only a part of what goes on in Memphis during that time. There was also the Yellow Dog Records showcase, the Benefit for the Blues Foundation Hart fund featuring the musicians who made the recent CD "Blues for Big Walter" -- my favorite event... so many great harmonica players on one stage! -- and many other jams and showcases that I did not make. I also went to the Blues Hall of Fame for the first time and attended the new play/musical revue "Ghosts of the Blues". I tried my best to give you a little taste of it this morning. For a list of all the BMA winners go to www.blues.org.

All of this is tempered by the loss of Candye Kane on 5/6. RIP.

Festival season is in full swing and WRFG's neighborhood festival takes place this weekend, the Inman Park Festival. Steve Ellison, who's in charge of the music, joined us this morning to talk about Sunday's special lineup and about the new non-profit venture that's being established with the help of donations at the stages this weekend: AMERF (Atlanta Musicians Emergency Relief Fund). Look for the orange and black containers and give generously. This could be a great thing for our musicians that bring us so much joy.
