Hey Malcolm,

I'll have to check out your radio show sometime. I could probably catch the last hour. That's a fairly rockin' playlist. My grandfather had that original Chess 45 with Maybelleine and Wee Wee Hours. I never figured out the words to Maybelleine until a singer friend taught them to me. Now I bang out the whole song on a piano. Been playing Wee Wee Hours as sort of a standard for many decades. When I first got into ITunes, I put Maybelleine on the top of my roots rock CD. Just heard it the other day passing through Ramona CA.

Rock on!

Flying Junior: Thanks for stopping by. That's a cool story about your grandfather. When I introduced "Wee Wee Hours" I said that although Chuck was known for his uptempo rock and roll tunes, he could pull off a blues ballad as good as anyone.

On my show, I play a wide variety of music from the 50s through the early 2000s. It gives me a lot of flexibility from week to week and keeps me from getting bored. To listen to my show, visit the following URL and click on the "Listen" link at the top of the page.

Currently, the webstream's server is down. Hopefully it'll be fixed soon.
