Blues and Rhythm Show 95 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013 (1:00-2:30 pm)

This coming week is Welcome Week on the McMaster Campus. We’ll be broadcasting live from the ground floor lobby of the McMaster Student Union Centre. Just as CFMU introduces new and returning students to the role of the radio station in Welcome Week , so,  this edition of Swear to Tell the Truth will be our attempt to introduce new listeners to all that we do week in and week out on the program. Because of the venue, emphasis will be greater on the music than on any commentary. We’ll have a mix of Blues, R&B, Soul and Gospel on the show (no filler), including tracks showcasing Eddy Clearwater and Matt Murphy, slated to appear at Hamilton Place September 27th along with Sugar Blue and Alvin Youngblood Hart.

We’ve also unwisely volunteered to fill a vacant hour of programming before The Blues and Rhythm Show on Tuesday. Not sure what we’ll do with that hour. Something we have to figure out tomorrow.

On the Show:

Lou Pomanti – Eddy Clearwater – Deitra Farr –  Jo-Ann Kelly – Big Maybelle – Nappy Brown – Kansas Joe & Memphis Minnie – Casey Bill – Kendall Wall  Blues Band – Betty LaVette – Inez Andrews

Listen to the program at FM 93.3 in Hamilton or on CFMU online at cfmu.mcmaster.ca. The program will be available to stream or as a podcast until October 1st.

No plan as yet but, time permitting, we may put together a feature on Savoy label rhythm & blues.
