Music

Be sure to join us this week (4/12/14) on Time For The Blues as Henry Cook and I will be up to our old tricks. That is, we’ll be serving up some very hot music and some very bad jokes. We make no bones about it, slide on up to the radio and relax and have a great time, we certainly will. We'll have brand new Holmes Brothers, more Blues Project and another visit with local harpmaster Li'l Ronnie Owens to share with you!
