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.

“I’m a poor boy and I’ve been treated mean” — Joe Callicott

On the Show:

Bill Jennings – Arbee Stidham – Wini Beatty – Clarence Samuels – Big Bill Broonzy – Fleetwood Mac – Johnny Barfield – Buford Boyd & Willard Benson – Joe Callicott – Smoke Wagon Blues Band – Shakura S’Aida – Clarence Carter – Anthony Paule Soul Orchestra – Esther Phillips – and others.
