Swear to Tell the Truth, July 20th, 2021 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Filed under: Uncategorized — cmcompton @ 12:10 am

We’re on a summer schedule but we aren’t taking off a block of time. We’re alternating new shows with repeats. The station will play a repeat of an earlier show. Look up Blues & Rhythm Show #299. for full details of this week’s repeat.

No Gospel on this week’s program following last week’s 2-hour post-war Gospel special. Couple of little-remembered names in R&B as well as some small label R&B out of L.A. from the Jiving on Central Ave. series. So much Rhythm & Blues came from Los Angeles and its many independent labels. Also, field recordings of two kinds– recordings from the major labels visits to locales in the southern U.S and recordings made by modern song collectors looking for unknown or forgotten musical talents. A bit of classic and some newly recorded Soul.

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, July 13, 2021 (10:00 to 12:00 noon)

At the heart of this week’s program a selection of guitar blues from the 1927-1931 era. Blues from Victor, Vocalion and Gennett but half from the Paramount label which had extraordinary success in finding down-home artists starting with Blind Lemon and Charley Patton but including many others who made only a few records in their lives, like Freddie Spruell, and those who recorded once or twice to see just a handful of sides appear on Paramount. Also on the program some blues from Detroit; a Cajun segment; Southern Gospel from 1960 and just beyond.
