Blues and Rhythm Show 193 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, August 18th, (1:00-2:30 pm).

We haven’t maintained our blogsite for the past month. This program began with some Texas blues, including a never issued instrumental by Long John Hunter. We featured Deak Harp on the show for the first time and then several Chicago blues tracks. We revisited a couple of white vaudeville blues recordings from the early 1920s and then looked at late twenties recordings by Clara and Bessie Smith, leading into a couple of quartet recordings from the Birmingham-Bessemer area of Alabama. Last in the show, some soul and soul-blues, including Cicero Blake.

On the Show:

Long John Hunter – Deak Harp – James Cotton – Aileen Stanley & Billy Murray – Clara Smith – Bessie Smith – Bessemer Sunset Four – Denise LaSalle – Cicero Blake – a.o.

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 September 14th.
