Blues and Rhythm Show 245 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, May 21st (10:00 to 12:00noon)

Looks as though we might fill the morning slot in CFMU’s Tuesday schedule at least for a while.  We had technical difficulties related to a CD burner so some of our preparations for this particular show were unexpectedly last-minute. The program featured some R&B circa 1950 and a lot of late 1930s-turn of the decade  blues. Also some gospel groups as opposed to quintets and quartets and a taste of soul. You can no longer hear the show live but you can stream or download.

On the Show:

Johnny Otis with Mel Walker – Chris Powell & His Five Blue Flames – Ellen McIlwaine – Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson – Hot Lips Page – Lewis Bronzeville Five – Peetie Wheatstraw – Rosetta Crawford – Lead Belly – Roberta Martin Singers – Alex Bradford – Betty Harris -James “Thunderbird” Davis – and others

Listen to the program at FM 93.3 in Hamilton, live on Cogeco Cable 288 or on CFMU online at cfmu.msumcmaster.ca. The program will be available to stream or download until July 9th. CFMU podcasts now available for 8 weeks. Couldn’t be easier. Just go the website, bring up the playlist and stream or download the show.
