A message from Jerry Schaefer:

After more than 14 years of broadcasting, the management of JVC
Broadcasting decided to cancel Graveyard Blues. This past Sunday,
August 14th
, was the "717th" and final broadcast on Long Island's
103.9 WRCN.

Graveyard Blues signed on at 'Long Island's Classic Rock' WRCN on
Sunday, May 12th, 2002. The 'blues' is a special musical genre... but the
connection between the folks who play the 'blues' and the people that
love
it... well, that's what makes it special. The friendships that I've made, with
the musicians, the listeners and all of the people involved with the 'blues'
--scene (both on L.I. and across the country) have a special place in my
heart. I'd be writing all day if I had to name the talented people that came
through the 'RCN studio... but there were many and every one of them
affected me in a positive way. Sharing their music, on the radio, was the
highlight of the past 14+ years. Of course, along with the immensely
talented local artists that graced our hallways... it was an absolute blast
--to interview several musical legends on the phone and also have The
Derek Trucks Band, Joe Bonamassa & Warren Haynes play 'live' in the
studio! And having Hubert Sumlin (the man who played
alongside Howlin'
Wolf & Muddy Waters) headline the Graveyard Blues
--5th Anniversary Party, is something that I'll never forget. Little Toby
Walker was our first 'live'
guest in June of 2002 and Kerry Kearney
(a frequent guest) was our final guest on WRCN. Those two 'class acts'

---and the hundreds of special folks that were guests in-between... YOU
were what made the show a success. So, while the WRCN chapter
comes to an end... a new radio chapter (down the dial) will begin in
September. Details will be forthcoming. Can't wait to 'play the blues'
(on the radio) for you soon! Thanks for listening!!!
