T Sings

Well, well...lucky me, I happen to tune in to one of the best darn Blues shows in the world. T's 'Every Shade of Blue'.  And there it is...pure gold. Harmonica John and Bud Lite are wailing away in studio prompting the blues ringmaster to belt out along with them...wouldn't ya know...T's got pipes.  Thanks to Harmonica John and Bud Lite for coming to the station.  They are promoting Spring Harp Fest this weekend in La Mesa. All the proceeds (after expenses) goes to Blues in the Schools, teaching the youngins' about the music. Surely, you can stop by, hear some great music and buy a beverage to support the cause. Here's the Information.
