This 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 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 individual hosts,
you are encouraged to do so.  However, please send
one to my attention for the WEMU library and for all
hosts to review for potential airplay.

This will be the final weekly blues report for WEMU
in 2004.  (We will file our monthly report to Living
Blues by December 31st).  I probably could have done
a list of 40 titles this week, because we have so
many wonderful new blues CDs in studio right now! 
We thank you for the great service in 2004.  We know
it can be hard on small labels and so we sincerely
appreciate the trust and confidence that you place
in WEMU knowing that we will do our best to play
your records.

We look forward to serving you and WEMU blues fans
in 2005.

Peace and blessings to all in the New Year.
