A cross-reference to the first overnight radio show placing a heavy emphasis on Canadian blues and fusions of same. Previously aired on CKCU 93.1 FM, and now on Saturday mornings at CHMR 93.5 FM. This blog's origins (which pre-date my radio broadcasting history) began as a free promotional tool for arts-related news. Obviously it is not a conventional online blog, i.e. diary, but I do insert my own narrations from time to time. See also http://nlbluessociety.blogspot.ca
