Blues and Rhythm Show 110 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, December 17th, 2013 (1:00-2:30 pm)

As well as this week’s program, we’ve been working on our Christmas show, which will air Christmas Eve. This week, in the feature portion of the show, we’re looking at Mississippi guitar Blues recorded between 1927 and 1930. Most of the musicians in our survey were born and lived in the Mississippi Delta region and all of the artists came to have some connection with the Delta region and delta blues. The question it occrs to us to ask is whether  “Delta blues” can be said to refer to one single thing, a single style.

On the Show:

Earl Hooker – Amos Milburn – Fathead –  Jack de Keyzer – Mr. Freddie Spruell – William Harris – Charley Patton – Son House – Willie Brown – Long John Baldry

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 January 14th
