The classic rock station I work for drops playlist, format and satellite feed
for three hours each Wednesday night for a program called the "Blue Cadillac".
It has been on the air for almost a year and has been well received by sponsors
and listeners alike. It features blues from yesterday and today from blues
artists known the world over and also from some local bands. The program is
hosted by Debra Lee and Fish, who share a knowledge and love of blues. If you
enjoy blues and find yourself in the Brattleboro area between 7 and 10 on a
Wednesday evening, this program is worth a listen.
