It's July 25th and we decided to play Christmas music!  Radio historian and former KISN DJ Craig Adams joins us with some selections from his collection of holiday music. And we take a look at the decades long running holiday favorite 'The Cinnamon Bear'. And we're excited to welcome blues guitarist Hamilton Loomis to the studio for a rare solo performance. And joining us from KBOO's Sunday afternoons, Armando, helps out on the control board for this mid summer special of blues and Christmas music.

This is an abridged version of original program as broadcasted on July 25, 2011. Recored music is sampled. Live performances are complete.

Short Description: 
Roots of the Blues Documentary precedes BluesFest!

To preface the start of the 2011 Waterfront Blues Festival, KBOO's live coverage of which kicks off immediately following today's Songcircle, we'll feature the legendary audio documentary, Blues in the Mississippi Night, featuring famous folklorist Alan Lomax's 1948 interview with the great bluesmen Memphis Slim, Big Bill Broonzy, and Sonny Boy Williamson about the origins of the blues deep in the Jim Crow south. The three men speak openly -- perhaps for the first time -- of the virulent racism they grew up with, and how blues music grew out of that environment as both an expression of and balm for the pain of prejudice, interspersed with illustrative tunes. Before the BluesFest kicks off, hear where the blues truly began!
