You Win Some, You Lose Some

My Head Is Bald cover
One of my favorite shows to listen to on the radio is the House of Blues Radio Hour. It can be heard on Rock 92 each Monday night from 11:00 p.m. to midnight. In addition, each night they have a "Midnight Blues Break". Both shows are hosted by Elwood Blues, alter ego of Dan Ackroyd and of course, one of the main characters of The Blues Brothers movie, one of my favorites. To go along with the radio show, they have a web site - TheBluesMobile.com - where you can get more info about the music they have on the show each week, along with a bunch of other stuff. I was there recently and they were having a contest for a CD (and I think a companion DVD) by Tail Dragger & His Chicago Blues Band. I checked it out as I don't like all blues music. The fact that it is Chicago blues was a pretty good indication that it might good and the snips I've been able to listen to over at Amazon's mp3 store sounded good. So I entered the contest. Lo and behold, I actually managed to win! The CD (and DVD?) should be on its way to me. It really didn't register with me, but the name of the CD - My Head Is Bald. Kind of appropriate. So in this case, I managed to win some.
