Last week, our program began with a feature on post-war Chicago blues based upon recordngs spanning the years !947 to 1960. This week, we cover the similar period in Detroit Blues. Detroit had a significant down-home blues scene but not the recording industry that existed in Chicago before Motown. Detroit attracted African-American migrants from he South, like Chicago, and from many of the same places although from a slightly more southeastern range of territory. Chicago had steel and meat packing. Detroit had auto. We have recordings dating from 1949 to 1959.

We also have some latter-day Detroit blues recordings, a short venture into country records from the Motor City, a segment devoted to Gospel from Detroit, including a quartet believed to have Wilson Pickett as lead, and a bit of funky Detroit Soul.

On the Show:

Todd Rhodes & His Septet – Charlie Spand – Calvin Frazier – Eddie Burns – Eddie Kirkland – Baby Boy Warren – Bobo Jenkins  – York Brothers – Alberta Adams – Flying Clouds of Detroit – Rev. C.L. Franklin – Meditation Singers – Laura Lee – Boogie Woogie Red  – and others

Listen to the program each week at FM 93.3 in Hamilton, live on Cogeco Cable 288 or on CFMU online at the CFMU website. The program will be available to stream or download until November 5th. CFMU podcasts now available for 8 weeks. Just go the website, bring up the playlist and stream or download the show.
