Blues and Rhythm Show 327 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, September 7, 2021 (10:00 to 12:00 noon)

The world is different in ways we could not have anticipated but it’s another new year on university campuses like McMaster’s, home to CFMU which for some reason allows us to present this weekly program on its airwaves. So, we’ll carry on as if this was just another new season of broadcasting at campus-community radio. On our first show of the fall, the day after Labour Day, we have a varied program: a few tracks we played on our debut CFMU program, including classics from Duke-Peacock, random tracks from Earl Hooker; R&B from the soft end of the spectrum; popular blues artists from the later 1930s; early protest blues and folk; death and Gospel; Soul from Muscle Shoals, Memphis and New Orleans.

“Well, I’ve always been in trouble ’causeĀ I’m a black skin man” — Josh White

“What is this that I can’t see. This icy hand taken hold of me?” — Jeanette Carter

“I’m a son of a son of a slave” — Larry Darnell

On the Show:

Earl Hooker – Marie Adams – Bobby Bland – Four Kings & a Queen – Ruth Brown – Aretha Franklin – Georgia White – Curtis Jones – Almanac Singers – Erwin Webb & group – Maria Muldaur – Mae Gooch & Gospel Stars – Kennedy, Milteau, Segal – Jimmy Hughes – Larry Darnell – and others
