Blues and Rhythm Show 111 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, December 24th, 2013 (1:00-2:30 pm)

Each year at this time we present a Christmas special. As we do every week, we play some contemporary tracks but most of the program is from the great traditions of Blues, Gospel, R&B and Soul. This is a challenge at Christmas time because there are a finite number of recordings from which to draw but we do our best to find material that is not so well-known and we try to avoid a lot of repetition of songs from one year to the next. We hope you enjoy this year’s selection and, quite incorrectly, we wish you a Merry Christmas!

On the Show:

Sister Luciile Pope & the Pearly Gates – Jimmy McCracklin – Sonny Parker with Lionel Hampton’s Orchestra –  Bertha “Chippie” Hill – Magnolia Five – Gladys Bentley – Big Dave McLean – Sister Jessie Mae Renfro – Larks – Mel Brown – Fiddlin’ John Carson

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 21st
