Note about streaming, downloading:

We could not download the program last week and station management confirmed that the podcast function was inoperative again, so apologies to any who could not stream or download last week’s show.  It appears that the podcast function has been repaired. In the next few months, CFMU will have a new website and you should not experience these recently manifest problems listening to CFMU programming.

Blues and Rhythm Show 210 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, December 29th (1:00 to 2:30pm)

In the middle of the Christmas break, we present a show with classic R&B and post-war blues. Blues from Chicago, Detroit and the West Coast. A lot of vinyl in this week’s mix.  

                                                                           Black Rocker 45-Homer Walker Jr.-Special Agent-Hear !

No single theme to this week’s show. Just a lot of things you won’t hear every day and you’re unlikely to hear on most other programs. We put together this type of show featuring all post-war electric blues and R&B, maybe, two or three times a year but especially in the week before New Year’s. And we try to find material we’ve overlooked in previous shows.

Next week (January 5th)

We stumbled upon a trove of material from a label that features a lot of latter-day Chicago blues. Some of that material will be on the show but the show will also include some R&B, some Gospel and some Soul.
