It’s with regret that I announce the passing of Blue Loon recording artist Mike The Hook Deutsch. The piano man succumbed to cancer on 6/24/09. Instead of thinking of him as having died, I prefer to say: He’s taking his place in that heavenly blues band, playing with his friends who got there before he did: Dave Ray, Rick O’Dell, Joel Johnson, Will Donicht, Percy Strother, Milwaukee Slim, Andy Bailey, Steve Killer Kilbride, Mike Nichols, Lady Blue Sonny Rodgers. Today’s show featured music that Mike recorded with some of those friends.
