Fridays @ 6:00 pm
Dave Watts
Your weekly journey through the blues from the early 50′s through the present. You may hear some Deep Soul, some Zydeco and whatever else I feel like playing that week as well. I make the show up as I go along; I don’t have it planned out so your requests usually get played if I can find them. You can always e-mail me if you have a question.
