Whether as a metaphor for tears and hardship, or describing the hard reality that flooding brings, rain has been a theme in countless blues songs over the decades. As we enter the rainy season, it seems like a good time for a program focusing on the rain....  Tom Wendt was away this week, Andy Hosch filled in.
