Here’s today’s programming:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Stevie Ray Vaughan NEW!
Today we introduce a brand new Spotlight featuring blues guitar great Stevie Ray Vaughan, some cuts studio and some live, a couple live with Double Trouble. This has been a long time coming.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Songbird by Eva Cassidy
Today is our second airing of Eva Cassidy’s Songbird album, a compilation album released posthumously. Eva Cassidy never got to appreciate stardom, dying tragically of cancer at the age of 33 in 1996, but her music lives on.

Speaking of the blues, this is a great bootleg from The Country Club. Rounding out the band we have Doug Wimbish on bass, Terry Bozio on drums, and Phil Ashley on keyboards.
Tune us in, folks. We have worldwide reach and plenty of countries are on board. Today we have France, Germany, Denmark, Estonia, Italy, Greece, the UK, Japan, Australia, and even the United States.
