Sister Mary acquired her love for the Blues from her Dad who loved Swing / Jump Blues.  Sister Mary has fond memories of doing the jitterbug with her Dad in their living room.  According to Sister Mary, the main reason she started volunteering at WFIT was because she loved the blues shows so much.  Now, she is able to create her own playlists and really loves doing it.  She's also had a wonderful time in helping other WFIT DJs create Playlists for their shows.
