A cross-reference to the first overnight radio show (CKCU 93.1 FM) placing a heavy emphasis on Canadian blues and fusions of same (2007-2012). From 2012-2014, "Rockin' the Blues from Canada" was broadcast on CHMR 93.5 FM (where it originated in 2005 as "Patchwork Blues"). This 'blog' was born in 2004 as a promotional tool for arts-related news when Geocites reclaimed its free websites.

TOO SLIM & THE TAILDRAGGERS NEWSLETTER (SEPT. 24)
Too Slim and the Taildraggers Newsletter
Every fall I reflect the long summer days and am always amazed at how quickly the lazy days of summer go! I always muse that I am going to have more times like Mungo Jerry's song "In the Summer Time". I guess I was meant to work for a musician!! This summer was quite fun with lots of music, which couldn't be better, but I am sad to say it is over!
Too Slim and the Taildraggers have had a very eventful year, lots of changes. Love Polly and Tommy and Peter too... I hope you can make it out to a show and catch the new band, hear some new songs, and enjoy the fall, even though I am daydreaming of summer today.
Sincerely, Nancy Langford
"A high-octane live recording that captures the band at the top of its craft, bringing the house down on every track with a unique blend of Americana, roots, blues, Southern swamp rock, and alt-country."
Too Slim and the Taildraggers will be doing a few Pacific NW dates and then heading out east for a few weeks then north to Canada in November. Check Too Slim's website for updated information. September
