Blues and Rhythm Show 288 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, September 1, 2020 (10:00 to 12:00 noon)

Ninth show from our North End bubble. This week, six days before Labour Day, we have a feature segment about reflections on work in blues and country music in the pre-war era and beyond. Nothing too serious. Neither black or white vernacular music dealt much with issues of labour, workers’ interests or collective struggle, and few songs deal entirely with the subject of work. But there are many songs that include reflections on work and its impact on peoples’ lives Also on the program, blues from the fities and sixties, Chicago and Memphis; Gospel; and Soul. 

“Don’t your woman look good when she got another man” – Hound Dog Taylor
