This morning we prepared for the Memorial Day Holiday weekend. I hope you have a good one, go hear some live music, and take a minute on Monday to reflect on the lives given for our country.

We've learned that Steve's Live Music is closing. I want to thank Steve and Heleen for all the great music they've hosted and for their support of WRFG. We wish them the best in their next endeavor.

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.

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!
