Blues and Rhythm Show 291 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, September 22, 2020 (10:00 to 12:00 noon)

Once again, this is a prerecorded show. We have some 1940s R&B from Mercury, classic R&B expressly for dancing, a bit of post-war Western Swing out of California and some Gospel from the Golden Era and just after. In the second half of the program we have a feature that looks closely at the Paramount label, the perhaps unintentionally great “race” label of the 1921-1932 era. This is the second instalment of a series we began in January. The first instalment took us just up to 1924. This one takes us through that year and into 1925, from classic blues to Papa Charlie Jackson, with Gospel and Hillbilly along the way.

On the Show:

Albert Ammons & His Rhythm Kings – Helen Humes – Buddy Johnson & His Orchestra – Mainline Amos Garrett – Saddle Tramps – Frank Hovington – Edmonia Henderson – Jelly Roll Morton – Ida Cox – Ukelele Bob Williams – Norfolk Jubilee Qartet – Jimmie Blythe -Bessie Griffin – Back Home Choir – and others.

Listen to the program each week at FM 93.3 in Hamilton, live on Cogeco Cable 288 or on CFMU online at cfmu.ca. The program will be available to stream or download until for eight weeks until November 17th as a podcast. Just go the website, bring up the right playlist and stream or download the show.

Errors & Omissions

Last week we pasted the same music file twice into the show audiofile . Sonny Rhodes played twice in succession while a Smokey Wilson track was omitted.

Next week
