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.

It was a good morning for a Rendezvous with the Blues! In this, the final week of the Spring Pledge Drive, we raised $750.00 for WRFG! That's tremendous! Thank you.

Don Powers of the Blind Willie McTell Festival joined us for a quick chat. They have a great lineup this year on May 7th and one lucky listener, Jeanne Gibson, is going to the festival in thanks for her WRFG contribution. Thanks to the Festival for donating tickets for our fund-raising effort.

This morning we looked at our second week of the Spring Pledge Drive as "Round 2" of a prize fight and asked you to help WRFG go the distance. In a heavy weight fight, there are 40-50 punches thrown. It would only take a fraction of that to land some significant blows against WRFG's expenses and help our station stay independent and vital. You delivered with $940 worth of paid pledges this morning, which is terrific! There are more rounds to go, though, so the fight isn't over. Please take the opportunity to land your blow next Thursday.

Curtis Salgado's back with a new release... but it's all related. John Belushi took his inspiration for the Saturday Night Live Blues Brothers skit from the explosive stage shows of Curtis Salgado. "Hey Bartender" one of the Blues Brothers best known songs was a Floyd Dixon hit. Floyd had another drinking song with "Wine, Wine, Wine" and then Candye Kane reminds us that it's (all that drinking) is because of a woman!
