Blues and Rhythm Show 145 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ont

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, September 2nd, (1:00-2:30 pm)

A special program for Welcome Week at McMaster University.We were live in the atrium of the McMaster University Student Union. No theme, just a selection of blues, R&B, gospel and soul. As well, a couple of examples of the hybrid music known sometimes as soul-blues, music sustained by a loyal audience but which survives without much attention from the larger music industry or the blues media.

On the Show:

Smiley Lewis – Sam “Highpockets” Henderson – Eddie Kirkland – Ginger St. James & the Grinders – Joe Pullum – Little Smokey Smothers – Loving Sisters – Bettye Swann – Willie Clayton – Little Booker

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 October 7th.

A review program based upon Amanda Petrusich’s book Do Not Sell at Any Price, about the pursuit of the rarest 78 recordings and the influence that blues 78 collectors have had upon what we understand about early blues. The show will feature many fine recordings from the twenties and thirties.
