THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES FOR THE WEEKEND OF APRIL 21-22, 2018 Great article on Zac Harmon in the April 12th edition of BluesBlast Magazine….It was written by a guy named Don Wilcock, who also wrote the Book You Gosh Darn Right I’ve got the Blues, the biography on Buddy Guy… In the article, Zac talks about every from his dad who was a Pharmacist, his experiences with B.B. King and Little Milton, to his experiences of writing songs. He even goes into what’s politically correct and politically incorrect in the Blues today. One of the highlights of the articles that Zac talked about, which was very touching to me, was his dedication to the Troops, so much so, that when they toured Kuwait back in 2009, they found out something that other acts did not do because of the danger involved.  What did they do??? They did it anyway…..Read the article, and you will thank Zac and others in the Blues for what they did…Great article by Don Wilcock in this months’ edition of BluesBlast Magazine.  We have a link to the article on the BluesNews page at bluestimeinthecity.com… https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox/162bb4a38f23be58 BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM A few months ago, in the great state of Mississippi, they did something that they really need some props for.  They unveiled their 200th Mississippi Blues Trail Marker in the town of Lyon Mississippi, right in front of their Town Hall.  This started in 2006, and they have done an incredible job with this project, reaching 200.  They have markers all over the state of Mississippi paying homage to their home grown music,   it is in the state.  You don’t just see them, if you take a minute, they have some very interesting information on them.   Want to find more on the Mississippi Blues Trail Markers, we have a link to the locations on our BluesNews page at bluestimeinthecity.com… http://msbluestrail.org/blues_marker_list BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM From the AmericanBluesScene.com sight, imagine if you would, you have doing what you love all of your life, and then, at the age of 81, you hit it big.  No, not winning the lottery, but hitting it big doing what you love.  That’s what happened with Leo Bud Welch who released his first album in 2014 at the age of 81.  Now, there’s a documentary on Leo titled Late Blossom Blues and it hit the stores Friday the 20th.  This doc was directed by Wolfgang Pfoser Almer, and it follows Welch enjoying his passion for the music and his late found success.  They even found some old footage of Leo performing his signature song Praise His Name, which is also incredible when you consider no one outside of this hometown of Bruce Mississippi had even seen Leo as a young man……We have a link to the trailer on the BluesNews page at BluesTime In The City.com…..Barry Kernzer wrote the article that appears on the AmericanBluesScene site…. https://youtu.be/fVX3JNw5M_0   WHERE THEY AT WHERE THEY AT:

THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES FOR THE WEEKEND OF MARCH 31 AND APRIL 1, 2018 It’s a done deal….Shaw University’s WSHA-FM 88.9 Campus radio station has been sold, according to Shaw’s Interim President.  WSHA has been the home for jazz, blues, reggae, gospel, and thousands of hours of public affairs program over the years, and it was the first public station owned by a HBCU, signing on the air in 1968.  The deal should be finalized in about 90 days.  Of course, there’s an outcry from the Alumni Association and Friends of Shaw alike, and a petition has been started on to save the station.  According to the upper echelon at Shaw speaking to various news outlets in Raleigh North Carolina, the sale is “part of a plan to provide a 21st century education for the students who elect to come to Shaw.”  The investment in the mass communications department is a way for the school to improve the career possibilities, the educational programs, the things that attract students to the university.”  It was a couple of years ago that Fayetteville State sold their station WFSS-FM to the University of North Carolina.  Of course, I’m a Black College fan, and this show airs on WSHA in Raleigh, but I look at this two ways, and let me be clear… I’m on the outside looking in.  I do understand the concerns of the rich tradition of a campus radio station, and I also look at how the communications landscape is changing in the world especially with the millennials coming of age.  Radio is totally different now, and according to what I’ve read, the upper echelon is trending to the future with new mass communications infrastructure being installed for learning purposes.  But that does not satisify the older alumni faithfuls and friends of WSHA in this situation.  It’s obviously a no win situation for Shaw, but like they did 50 years ago when they brought radio to the campus, 50 years from now, this may be looked at as a bold move for Shaw…We’ll have to wait and see… BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM Wednesday April 4th is the birthday of the late Muddy Waters, and there’s been a petition going around to get Google to put a Google Doogle of Muddy Waters on their home page on the 4th… A lot of people signed the petition and I don’t think we will know if the Mud makes until Wednesday.  Check in on Google.com on Wednesday to see if this petition has been successful.  I think they got enough participants to make it happen…Check it out on Wednesday, on Muddy Waters Birthday….
