We wound up having to rush this show together. We move around quite a bit in this week’s program.

Also, Otis Rush and trend-setting record producer Ralph Peer, who will be the subject of an upcoming program. Some of the program refers back to earlier shows and some looks ahead to upcoming shows we have planned, like the Ralph Peer special and the Louisiana special later this month.

Willie Wright & the Sparklers – Dolly Cooper – Linda Hayes – Bozo Nickerson – Grey Ghost – Otis Rush – Wonder Boy Travis – Juke Boy Bonner – Paramount Singers – Etta James – a.o.

Blues and Rhythm Show 184 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, June 16th, (1:00-2:30 pm)

Our program for Juneteenth. Juneteenth, trditionally June 19th, the date marking the American government’s enforcement of the Emancipation Proclamation in Texas when Texas was slow to comply. It’s been observed in other places but its roots are in Texas and we are using the occasion to feature traditional music from Texas–not the music of the slavery era but the music that postdated slave times and by performers who grew up in the shadow of slave times.

On the Show:

Buster Pickens – Lead Belly – Sippie Wallace – Henry Thomas, “Ragtime Texas” – Bat and her Quartet – Black Ivory King – Black Ace – Smokey Hogg – Frankie Lee Sims – Grey Ghost

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 July 14th.
