Shout out to Howard from Canada, who is a faithful listener! I thanked him for listening and he said, “Dave great show and yes I do listen. Actually I have 5 of your shows in rotation at my shop every day. Change them up every 2 or 3 weeks, so I guess I listen to each show 20 times or so. Thank you for your contribution in getting this genre out there. Your efforts do not go unnoticed. Tic a Fog Podcast, a podcast to shine a light on the Atlantic Canadian blues music !

Thanks to Michael Allen Engstrom from the Crossroads Blues Gallery
