Blues and Rhythm Show 153 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, October 28th, (1:00-2:30 pm)

Mostly blues and a couple of gospel sides on today’s show. We have a brief set of early 1950s Chicago blues, including a number of recordings involving Sunnyland Slim.  Also, we take short look at the “44 Blues” theme and its popularizer, if not its originator, Little Brother Montgomery. We take a last brief look at the first Hammer Bluesfest, scheduled for November 1st and we take a slight bow towards Halloween.

On the Show:

Little Junior Parker – Bill Westcott – Butch Cage & Willie Thomas – Five Jones Boys – Jack de Keyzer – Robert “Junior” Lockwood – J.B. Lenoir – Sunnyland Slim – Katie Bell Nubin – 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 November 26th.
