Blues and Rhythm Show 161 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, December 23rd, (1:00-2:30 pm)

We assemble this program on the computer and, of course, we also maintain this blogsite, but we were without a working computer for most of the week prior to the Christmas show. In the end, we did manage to put a show together but not to give advance notice of the content.

There is a limited supply of classic blues, rhythm, & blues, gospel and soul for Christmas and this was our fourth Christmas special at CFMU. Most of the program was made up of fresh material, however, and we think it was a quality selection.

On the Show:

Casey Bill & His Orchestra – Goree Carter – Rev. J.M. Gates – Selah Jubilee Singers – Bumble Bee Slim – Charles Brown – Reverend Cleophus Robinson – Blind Boys of Alabama with Mavis Staples –  Richard Newell  – 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 January 21st.
