Blues and Rhythm Show 333x on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, November 2, 2021 (10:00 to 12:00 noon)

Apologies to any that tuned in to hear the program outlined on this site for last week. It’s hazard of submitting audiofiles to the station rather than being present in the studio that the wrong show may come to air. That happened last week. What aired last Tuesday was a repeat of last week’s program (BRS 332). Beyond our control, but as the Syl Johnson song goes, “Sorry ’bout Dat”. We’ve revised the program and the emphasis on Chicago recordings is now greater than the original show we planned. Things just worked out that way. Brief feature on Syl Johnson; Wolf and Sonny Boy; Cobra; Gospel from Chicago.

“So hard to be nice when you treat me the way you do” — Otis Rush

“Here in the ghetto it’s a sad situation. Call it what you wanna, it’s a concrete reservation” — Syl Johnson

On the Show:

Junior Wells – Jimmy Johnson – Downchild Blues Band – Elroy Hart – Buddy Durham – Ginger St. James – Morgan Davis – Homesick James – Sonny Boy Williamson – Magic Sam – Syl Johnson – Otis Clay – Alvin Cash & the Registers – and others
