Purple Songs Can Fly was founded, and I began working with the first child on March 21, 2006. The children’s songs are copied on purple CDs and flown by participating passengers, pilots and astronauts to places on earth and into space.

Jeff Dale was born and raised on the south side of Chicago and was taught how to play the blues by two itinerant blues musicians from the west side when he was 13 years old. He ended up in Southern California, recording and playing until 1988 when he disappeared.
He is back now with his band, the South Woodlawners and their new album is entitled Good Music. I will chat with Jeff, try and find out what was going on during that 20 year absence and listen to his music.
