We lost another great Blues Singer from Jackson Mississippi….We’ll tell you who we lost on the BluesNews….  And throughout the show, we’ll let you know Where They At….Where the Blues and Southern Artists are appearing.  Of course, we’ll play the absolute best in Blues and Southern Soul.  Join R-R-Rojene Bailey for BluesTime In The City Where we give you the Blues without giving you the Blues…..This Weekend…
