This list reflects airplay on WEMU’s special blues
shows: “Big City Blues Cruise”, “The Blues And Some
Other Stuff”, “Blues On The Mellow Side”, and all
89.1 Jazz shows. We blend a little blues into all
our jazz shows just to make sure that we’re always
soulfully rooted in great American music.

Joe Tiboni hosts the “Big City Blues Cruise” from 3
to 6 PM Sundays. “Blues And Some Other Stuff” with
Michael Jewett airs from 7 to 10PM Sundays followed
by Doug Cameron’s “Blues On The Mellow Side” from
10PM to 1AM. 

If you would like to send CDs to the individual show
hosts, you are encouraged to do so.  However, please
also send one to my attention for the WEMU library
for all hosts to review for potential airplay.
