My thoughts and feelings on this showMy thoughts
Christmas was a busy ime for me and with family stuff, I had little time for researching new music and new stories to share but now that we are well into a brand new year I am getting back to working on the show and brand new 2020 Blues is heading my way. I thought I would share some new tunes with you and I am settling down to doing what I love; Blues Hunting.My feelings
I was excited to share some new 2020 Blues with you and after a break over Christmas, I was itching to to do a show. The show went well andit felt like coming home. Some amazing artists on the show from Georgia Randall, Val Starr, Peter Orr and many more. Thanks to DJ JP's friends at Tyson Foods and a bunch of others, I had over 200 listeners and since I didn't advertise the show, that is pretty good going for me and I am deeply grateful to all of them.
I really hope you enjoyed the show.
