Blues and Rhythm Show 296 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, November 3, 2020 (10:00 to 12:00 noon)

This episode of the program airs on Election Day in the U.S. Accordingly, we put together a show that attempts to track how Blues and Roots music on commercial record reflected electoral politics and political change over forty years. It wasn’t that unusual for commercial recordings to have political events or social policies as their subject but, as in any era, it wasn’t typical either. Our survey includes recordings made between 1926 and 1983. and includes Blues, Gospel and Country recordings.

On the Show

Johnnie Taylor – Banjo Joe – Uncle Dave Macon – Beale Street Sheiks – Allen Brothers – Joe Pullum – Casey Bill Weldon – Merline Johnson – Champion Jack Dupree – Harmon Ray – Jackie Doll & His Pickled Peppers – Memphis Slim – Bobo Jenkins – Geneva Vallier – Southern Bell Singers – Sunnyland Slim – 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 December 22nd as a podcast. Just go the website, bring up the right playlist and stream or download the show.
