Well, the calendar snuck up on me again and I find it's Christmas time. We'll take a break from

the blues for one night and play some close-family-relation gospel for an evening. There'll still be Mississippi Fred McDowell, Blind Willie Johnson, Rev. Gary Davis, Brownie McGhee and other blues artists on tonight's show, but the secular music will take a back seat to songs with a more "up-lifting" message.

Some sacred steel guitar performances and old (and newer!) songs by gospel heavyweights like the Five Blind Boys of Mississippi, the Soul Stirrers and Sister Rosetta Tharpe will round out the show.

Drive safe, stay warm and enjoy your friends and family!
