Blues and Rhythm Show 89 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013 (1:00-2:30 pm)

We were late patching this show together. We’re going to be looking at some diverse R&B tracks but, in the middle of the program, we’ll be looking at Lightnin’ Hopkins and a few of his forerunners and contemporaries. As it happens, we finally got hold of the Alan Govenar biography of Sam Hopkins, which was published about three years ago and, since we don’t plan a Lightnin’ Hopkins feature in the near future, we thought we’d follow a few threads suggested by the book.  

On the show: 

Smiley Lewis  –  The Dixieaires  –  Amos Milburn – Earl King – Buster Pickens – J.T. “Funny Paper” Smith – Lightnin’ Hopkins – Floyd Dixon – Harrison Kennedy – Martha Bass – and others

Listen to the program at FM 93.3 in Hamilton or on CFMU online at cfmu.mcmaster.ca. The program will be available to stream or as a podcast until August 20th.
