Here’s what’s Trending in the BluesNews from the World of the BluesBlues this Week…..

Congratulations To Jerry “Boogie” Mason

Jerry Mason is the 2022 receipeint of The Keeping The Blues Alive Award, presented by The Blues Foundation in Memphis Tennessee.  Our congratulations go out to the Editor of The Boogie Report and his many other platforms that the music of The Blues and Southern Soul are presented to the world.

Jerry has a long career in traditional radio and has built a network of media connections through Emails, Social Media, Print, and other mediums to promote the blues, Southern Soul and other genres of music that is becoming invisible in communities of color.  His daily blast of “The Boogie Report” is and has been a medium to keep the Lovers of the music alerted to news, trends, and daily updates to the happenings of this beloved music.  Through his Southern Soul Video Network, his Blues Buffet Radio Program, along with his newsletters, you can see and hear music that’s not presented on “The  Big Stations,” but that does not deter Boogie.  He is always the “Go To Man” for distribution of this precious music.

Congratulation to our friend,  “Boogie” from all of us here at BluesTime In The City…
