Blues and Rhythm Show 249 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, June 18th (10:00 to 12:00noon)

This week a Texas special to mark The arrival of Juneteenth, Juneteenth is observed annually on June 19th in memory of the Emancipation of slaves in America. The date, June 19th, is the date in 1865 that General Granger came to Galveston with troops and affirmed the Emancipation Proclamation that had hung in abeyance in the state of Texas. With Texas effectively distant from much of the conflict in the Civil War slaveholding continued as though the Proclamation had not taken effect on January 1, 1863.

After four weeks in the Tuesday morning 10:00 slot the program becomes official in the CFMU schedule this week. We’ll be here at 10:00 Tuesday mornings in the coming weeks. We may consider a change in the schedule in the fall but we’re going to try to make this timeslot work for us.

Blues, Rhythm & Blues, Soul and Gospel on this week’s show–R&B from 1949 to 1954, Blues from 1934 to 1950, Soul from several famous studios in the south and Chicago and Gospel from the “Golden Era” and later. With the two-hour format in the morning, we will likely present more of a magazine format rather than long features but we won’t know for sure until we work with the two hour

On the Show:

Eskew Reeder – Ricky Allen – Lalo Guerrero – Five Royales – Memphis Minnie – Lonnie Johnson – Walter Davis – Sue Foley – Magic Slim – Johnnie Taylor – Erma Coffee – Brother Joe May – Inez Andrews & the Andrewettes – Sojourners – and others

Blues & Rhythm Show Back on CFMU, 93.3 in Hamilton, Ontario – May 7th, 10:00-12:00

Filed under: Uncategorized — cmcompton @ 9:20 am

Swear to Tell the Truth is a “blues” show that includes and extensively features classic R&B and delves into Gospel, Soul and to other musical genres that intersect with the blues tradition. Our emphasis in blues is on the original blues traditions. We play music from as far back in history as the 1890s through to the current era. We do feature some of what is promoted as blues today but we make no claim to cover the contemporary blues field in any comprehensive way.

Swear to Tell the Truth: the Blues & Rhythm Show is returning to the airwaves and broadband for one week at least. A new edition of the show will air on Tuesday, May 7th. If things work out positively we may be returning to doing the show on an ongoing basis.

There are any number of blues programs available around the world and you can explore and sample them on the internet. We think that what we have done in the past is fairly unique and, if anything, our playlists on the show will explore the blues tradition more deeply and on a wider plane than the last series did.

Watch for a further announcement soon about our comeback program…
