Blues and Rhythm Show 247 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, June 4th (10:00 to 12:00noon)

After four weeks in the Tuesday morning 10:00 slot the program becomes official in the CFMU schedule this week. We’ll be here at 10:00 Tuesday mornings in the coming weeks. We may consider a change in the schedule in the fall but we’re going to try to make this timeslot work for us.

As this will be our first show not as a fill in for Out With It, which previously occupied this place in the schedule, we’re going to use the June 4th program as a survey-showcase of what we will be doing on the show week to week.

Blues, Rhythm & Blues, Soul and Gospel on this week’s show–R&B from 1949 to 1954, Blues from 1934 to 1950, Soul from several famous studios in the south and Chicago and Gospel from the “Golden Era” and later. With the two-hour format in the morning, we will likely present more of a magazine format rather than long features but we won’t know for sure until we work with the two hour

On the Show:

Eskew Reeder – Ricky Allen – Lalo Guerrero – Five Royales – Memphis Minnie – Lonnie Johnson – Walter Davis – Sue Foley – Magic Slim – Johnnie Taylor – Erma Coffee – Brother Joe May – Inez Andrews & the Andrewettes – Sojourners – and others

Listen to the program 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 August 6th. 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.
