Blues and Rhythm Show 186 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

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

This week we go to air the day before Canada Day, July 1st. It was known once as Dominion Day but we threw off that vestige of our colonial past. This is not a program that specializes in Canadian blues-oriented music. Week to week, we concentrate on aspects of the history of blues, r&b and soul in the classic years and we play recent or contemporary music when we judge the music connects with something in that classic tradition, whether the music comes from Canada or elsewhere. Other blues-oriented programs are more up-to-date and more expert about newer music that is placed in the blues category. We play some of what those other shows play and a lot we don’t.

Notwithstanding anything stated above, we will be playing only Canadian music on June 30th. Some of the recordings are more current. Others go back a few years. A lot of Canadian artists have gone deep into the music and found something of what is essential in it. We play those artists when we find their music and this week we turn the entire 90 minutes to Canadian recordings.

On the Show:

Kendall Wall Blues Band – Little Miss Higgins – Harpdog Brown – Sue Foley – King Biscuit Boy – Amos Garrett – Paul James Band – Jackson Delta – Michael Jerome Browne – and others

Listen to the program at FM 93.3 in Hamilton or on CFMU online at cfmu.msumcmaster.ca. The program will be available to stream or as a podcast until July 28th.
