Blues and Rhythm Show 76 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, April 23, 2013 (1:00-2:30 pm)

There’s no feature this week, but we will be playing some blues and R&B recorded  in New York between 1948 and 1959 in one segment of the program and some traditional gospel by evangelical preachers and, perhaps, one sidewalk evangelist. This music also from the post-World War 2  era, later in the show.

On the show: 

Stick McGhee – Big Chief Ellis – Big John Greer –  Faye Adams – Sarah Dean – H-Bomb Ferguson – Dutch Mason – Prophet Powers – Rev. Louis Narcisse – and many others

Listen to the program at FM 93.3 in Hamilton or on CFMU online at cfmu.msumcmaster.ca. The program will be available to stream or as a podcast until May 20th.

Next week (April 30th)

Blues Figures of the 1920s – part 2. We look again at recordings made by so-called “country blues” artists between 1925 and 1930. In a further  week or two, we will be presenting a feature on Louis Jordan. Come back to this site for updates.

We’ll also let you know, when we find out, about the soon to be available CFMU app, which will allow people to listen to CFMU programs on mobile devices. Coming soon, we are told.
