Blues and Rhythm Show 178 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, May 5th, (1:00-2:30 pm)

We’re writing this after the show went to air. We went to air unaware that the station had replaced the two on-air CD players so the show was marred by some bad transitions as we learned the quirks of the new machines the hard way.

This week’s show was a miscellany. In the mix, a few tracks featuring New York session guitarists Mickey Baker and Wild Jimmy Spruill; a nod to the city of Baltimore; a segment devoted to Blues and gospel artists in Britain on tours arranged by jazz band leader Chris Barber; also, King Biscuit Boy produced by Allen Toussaint

On the Show:

Roy Lee Curtis – B. Brown & His Rockin’ McVouts – Charley McCoy – Sonny Boy Williamson II – James Cotton – Steve Strongman – Stephen Barry Band – Sister Rosetta Tharpe –and many others

Listen to the program at FM 93.3 in Hamilton or on CFMU online at cfmu.msu.mcmaster.ca. The program will be available to stream or as a podcast until Jun 2nd.
