It’s rainy again, I’m sick, I’m so tired I think I’ve begun to see and hear things that aren’t really there, life keeps speeding up and all I want to do is slow down. Man, now would be a perfect time for some blues. One of my favourite quotations comes from The Simpsons, when Bleeding Gums Murphy was talking to Lisa,
“The Blues isn’t about feeling better. It’s about making other people feel worse – and making a few bucks while you’re at it.”
Sadly, that is not my intention with the show today. As much as I would like to have us all wallow in self-pity for a couple of hours (and we all know there is no shortage of great blues music to get us there), I’m actually going to attempt the opposite: feel-good music. And I don’t mean that obnoxious self-help, you-can-do-it, go-the-distance tripe. I mean the type of stuff that genuinely makes you feel, “You know what? Things aren’t so bad.”
With your mind wide open, and all the good intentions you can muster, tune in from 4:00 to 6:00 today and enjoy.
