Blues and Rhythm Show 308 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, February 16, 2021 (10:00 to 12:00 noon)

We should be describing our annual Mardi Gras special but something happened this year. We missed the important detail that Fat Tuesday falls earlier this year, today, February 16th, in fact,–until we’d already put together our program. Too late to put it aside and assemble another show. What we have instead is a program with a segment featuring Rhythm & Blues from Chicago independent labels and another segment in the second hour divided between recordings by Blind Boy Fuller with his associates and some later recordings by Piedmont artists. Also, something from the recent EP Lo-Fi Blues and a bit of live Rosetta Tharpe from 1970.

On the Show:

Floyd Smith – Bill Samuels – Tab Smith Orchestra with Chick Young – Alberta Adams – Sugar Brown – Harpdog Brown & the Bloodhounds – Lonnie Johnson & Elmer Snowden – Blind Boy Fuller – Blind Gary Davis – Henry Johnson – Tarheel Slim – Lone Star Playbiys – Rev. Joihn Wilkins – and others.

Listen to the program each week at FM 93.3 in Hamilton or on CFMU online at cfmu.ca. The program will be available to stream or download until for eight weeks until April 13th as a podcast. Just go the website, scroll through 40 shows to Tuesday 10:00 am bring up the right playlist and stream or download the show
