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.
