What's better than a beautiful spring morning and lots of tasty new blues? And with spring, comes thoughts of romance. There's the young love of rock and roll -- all dreamy and romantic. There's the typical blues song of lost love -- my baby left me. And then there are new songs of mature relationships brought to us this morning by Gaye Adegbalola & the Wild Rutz and Debbie Davies. Enjoy!

In our second week of the spring pledge drive, we continued to cross those rivers, climb that mountain, and cross the miles to raise the dollars we need to keep the station operations flowing.

You were so very generous today! I had a matching challenge for Georgia State and Emory alum carried over from a listener to Sunday's My Own House. She'd pledged to match those alums pledges up to $500 and we did it. The total for the morning was $980 -- and that doesn't count her initial contribution or match! So, thank you! Thanks, too, to Steve K for coming in early and helping with the phones.

We've many rivers to cross, a mountain (of debt) to climb, and miles to go before we sleep* -- it's spring pledge drive!

Thanks to your support WRFG has been on the air 40+ years now, but we need your help to carry on. As with any organization that runs on a shoestring budget, it's easy to get behind on the bills, and when you do, it's very hard to catch up. WRFG is behind on payments to our tower where our transmitter resides. Without tower space, there is no radio broadcast. We can't let that happen! See the WRFG home page for more info.

Thanks to the wonderful callers this morning, we raised $540 dollars in contributions and pledges. I'll be listening for YOUR call next Thursday.

* (with apologies to Jimmy Cliff and Robert Frost!)
