PLEASE CHECK YOUR RECORDS TO MAKE SURE WE ARE RECEIVING YOUR NEW RELEASES.

Our hits are currently running about 700-1000 per week and growing at about 20% per week. Our e-mails indicate that we have very dedicated listeners all over the world. Most of the emails inquire as to how they can buy the music. We are a not-for-profit enterprise dedicated entirely to giving blues artists everywhere exposure that they never get on commercial radio. We have been at this since September 1991, and on the internet since 1997. You have supported the show in the past. If for some reason you gave up on us while we were off the air in 2000, we hope you will resume servicing our show.
