This morning we woke up with roosters and had wishful thoughts of an all-night rain... neither of which are very likely to happen here in Atlanta any time soon. We can always hope!

Joe Louis Walker rolls into town for a show at Blind Willie's this Saturday and it was my privilege to talk with him and share our conversation with you. We learned a lot about the music community in San Francisco in the hippy days, Joe's thoughts on the blues and the "credibility" they provide an artist, and the making of his latest release "Everybody Wants a Piece". I'm a big JLW fan and loved talking to him. I hope you enjoyed listening in.

Our final Thursday of the fall pledge drive was a great one! Thanks to George Klein, co-president of the Atlanta Blues Society, and to Steve K for their help. We raise $1,125, which will go immediately to work to cover the operating expenses of WRFG. Thank you so much!

With George being in the studio and an interview with Brandon Santini, we had ample opportunity to talk about Blues Stotts, an Atlanta Blues Society event at Blind Willie's that remembers our friend, Larry Stotts, and raises money for Cystic Fibrosis.

For the second Thursday of the fall pledge drive, we started with the reminder that WRFG's Good Morning Blues is the sunshine that starts our days and asking you if you appreciate that and miss your "sun" when it's gone (or when you're out of town), that you show it by making your pledge of support. The phones were a bit quiet, but that's ok. That just makes the $189.30 we raised even sweeter.

The first week was really good. Thanks to Steve K for filling in for me. With help from Black Jack and AJ, they raised over $1,000!

There's one more week to go... let's make it a good one!

Seeing the new -- to me -- band, Royal Johnson Tuesday at Darwin's do their version of "Dying Crapshooters Blues" made me want to hear some Blind Willie McTell, so that was the inspiration of the start this morning. With William Bell headed to City Winery Thursday night, it would just highlight the broad spectrum of Blues, R&B, and Soul available live here in Atlanta and how glorious it is to go out and partake in all of it. I hope you hear some live music this weekend.

With the Georgia Blues and Roots Festival put on by the Atlanta Blues Society on October 1st at the Mable House Amphitheatre, there's certainly a great opportunity to hear quality performers in one big, big day. Check it out: http://www.gabluesnroots.org/

And as a final thought... just how short does a dress have to be to be too short for Bobby Rush?

I always enjoy the Thursday before the Labor Day Blues BBQ... the anticipation of a day of great music, seeing all my blues friends (some of whom I may not have seen since the year before), and generally having a wonderful day. It was a pleasure to play the music of the folks who'll be at the BBQ. In addition we had a chance to chat with Jeannie and Mike Edwards of the band Sole Travelers, so find out a bit about their backgrounds and how they came to be as a new Atlanta Blues band.

Thanks to the Atlanta Blues Society, Big Green Egg, and Echota Home Inspections for their support of this year's event. Their contributions go toward the expense of the event so that YOUR contribution goes toward the operating funds of WRFG. Thanks for supporting community radio!

Today's a big birthday for Atlanta Blues fans to celebrate... Mr. Eddie Tigner was born on this day in 1926 in Macon, GA. He's traveled the world with his blues, but aren't we lucky that he returned to Atlanta to stay and play for us! There will be big celebrations for Eddie's 90th birthday at Fat Matt's tonight and Northside Friday. So, it's only appropriate that we started and ended with music from Eddie's very fine 2nd Music Maker release, Slippin' In.

I've been listening to a lot of new music this week, so we featured that, but I hope I put in enough familiar tunes to make the discriminating listener happy that you joined me for our Rendezvous with the Blues.

Whew! Back on Good Morning Blues part I this morning!

I took note of blues birthdays happening today and Saturday: Roy Rogers, Mike Bloomfield, and Junior Kimbrough today and Buddy Guy, Big Jack Johnson, and Otis Taylor Saturday. Perhaps if you have a child whose birthday falls on one of those days, you might want to buy him or her a guitar and some Buddy Guy records (not to mention the rest)!

I was especially pleased to remember Big Jack Johnson. I've already really liked his song "We Got to Stop This Killing". Too bad, in today's climate, that Big Jack isn't still around spreading that message!
