As the celebration of Women's History Month continues on BIG TEXAS BLUES, my special guest in the studio Thursday morning will be harmonica queen Cheryl Arena. Cheryl will be presenting a blueswoman history segment on Sister Rosetta Tharpe, as well as bringing in and playing music by other influential blueswomen. Cheryl has taken the DFW area captive since moving here from Boston. Tune in and hear her discuss some of her favorite blueswomen.

My thanks to last weeks guest, the inimitable Miss Marcy. If you missed it, well, so sad for you. Boy, did we have some (naughty) fun!

And next week, Thurs. March 29th, my special guest in the studio will be 17 year old blues guitarist Jessica Munn. You've seen her out at many of the local jams, and she's played gigs with me and the T-Bonz at the Cadillac Pizza Pub in McKinney and also joined us for our set at last years Southwest Blues Heritage Foundation Festival in Irving.

Jessica will be doing the "12 Bar Blues Series", and bringing in the songs that have influenced her as a musician. In the local blues community, we often talk about needing to get the younger generation interested in the Blues so that it does not die away, so I think it will be particularly interesting to hear what things have influenced this 17 year old young woman to choose blues. Maybe we can all learn something about what we need to pass on to the next generation to keep the blues alive.

All of these things and more (including the Weekly Live Blues Calendar at 11 am) on BIG TEXAS BLUES, Thursday mornings from 9 am until Noon on KNON 89.3 FM Dallas/Ft. Worth, and also worldwide on the web from the link at
