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 our
jazz shows to make sure that we are 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 show hosts, you
are welcome to do so, but please send one to the
music director for our library.  All WEMU hosts need
to be able to review your music for potential airplay.
