Blues and Rhythm Show 253 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, July 30th (10:00 to 12:00 noon)

This week’s program included a special devoted to Louisiana music, mostly of the fifties and early sixties but including tracks from the forties to the eighties. Swamp blues, R&B, Cajun and Zydeco. That took up the greater part of the program but we also took a look at the Smithsonian Folkways album devoted to Lead Belly‘s recordings for Moses Asch’s various label ventures, recordings made between 1941 and 1948. Leadbelly had spent time previously in a Texas prison but the Lomaxes met up with him in the Angola Penitentiary and he grew up in the Caddo Lake region of western Louisiana.
