Full-Time Blues Radio is all new, with music from indie up-and-comers, as well as brand new singles from some big names. In addition, this week’s featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is off an album that is raising proceeds for a great cause. I also roll out my tribute to the late, great Bobby “Blue” Bland. Don’t miss it!

The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is “Keep on Smilin'” by The Healers. It comes off the brand new CD/DVD package Live At Knuckleheads. This set was created to help raise funds for the non-profit organization Blue Star Connection, whose mission is “to provide access and ownership of musical instruments for children and young adults with cancer and other serious life challenges.” The Healers are an all-star crew of top Blues musicians that include Kate Moss, Samantha Fish, Jimmy Hall, Reese Wynans, Kris Schnebelen, and Danielle Schnebelen.

To date, Blue Star Connection has donated musical gear to more than 25 community programs and children’s hospital music therapy programs. We all know that music improves the quality of life, and that the ability to play music can strengthen a child’s ability to learn and grow in other areas of life; but Blue Star Connection is using music as a way to battle severe illnesses!
