THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF AUGUST 22-23, 2015

The NFL Television Network found the blues for some of their promotions for the upcoming season……
(Sunday Kind Of Love By Etta James)
That is by Etta James’s, Sunday Kind of Love, and it’s featured in some of their promotions campaigns promoting their 2015 NFL Season….. It’s a cool concept, and I personally can’t wait until the season starts…. And in the just released movie, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., you can hear some Solomon Burke music featured prominently in their promotions campaigns… Which goes to show, The Blues is all over…. Some NFL teams will have the true blues this season…..Not my team or your team…But some teams……These campaigns work very well…..

Blues Singer Tommy Brown is being honored by the city of Atlanta Georgia… The Atlanta will have a Special Reception and Proclamation Presentation on September 8th at 12 noon…. Kudos go out to Councilman Michael Julian Bond and the Atlanta City Council for recognizing Weepin Tommy Brown with such an honor..  Blues Singers usually don’t receive any type of honors.  They usually just go by the way side. . Tommy has been around for a while and has sang the blues all over the world. He’s in his 80’s now, and it’s great for him to be honored while he’s still around.  We’ll play some Tommy Brown before the end of the show…. Again, that recognition of Tommy will take place September 8th at 12 noon in the Atrium at Atlanta City Hall….
