Blues and Rhythm Show 213 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, January 19th (1:00 to 2:30pm)

No theme this week but we have some Soul music out of Memphis and other locations, including tracks by Otis Clay that didn’t fit into last week’s tribute feature. Also, some gospel and a bit of music with a Buffalo connection.

We sample the latest album by Willie Walker who continues to surprise with his ability to keep it fresh with albums of new material and inspired covers into his seventies. The new album follows on the series of albums with Minneapolis’ Butanes and Curtis Obeda.  The new album shows no creative decline from  the previous albums made with the Butanes.
