Blues and Rhythm Show 167 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, February 10th, (1:00-2:30 pm)

We had begun putting a program together for last Tuesday when events intruded and we realized we would not be able to make the show. This week’s program picks up where last week’s incomplete draft of a show left off. Apologies to those who tuned in last week to hear a repeat.

What we have lined up for this week includes some classic blues, some R&B, and some ragtime and boogie. Also, a brief consideration of Valentine’s Day and the blues; a tribute to Don Covay; and, by request, Jackie Wilson.

On the Show:

Roosevelt Sykes – Bessie Smith – Fats Noel – Jimmy Yancey – Josie Miles – Roy Brown – Michael Jerome Browne – Don Covay – Jackie Wilson – Nathaniel Dett Chorale – and others

Listen to the program at FM 93.3 in Hamilton or on CFMU online at cfmu.msu.mcmaster.ca. The program will be available to stream or as a podcast until March 9th.

This week’s lineup includes fifties and sixties blues and R&B from both coasts, some hard blues and a couple of tracks on the poppish side of things. We have something from the new CD from Mark “Bird” Stafford (Live At the Delta) and an older track from Charlie Musselwhite, lately touring with Ben Harper. Also, some sacred steel and something from a fine retro singer who appears to have a new CD on the way.

Next week (August 27th)

Our last program of the summer will be our repeat of the John Lomax Southern Journey feature, which first aired in May. The following week, September 3rd, will emanate from the lobby of the McMaster Student Union building and we’ll be shopping all of our musical wares for those who are present live at the MSU and those of you listening at home or at work.
