Blues and Rhythm Show 189 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, July 21st, (1:00-2:30 pm)

A listener asks if we will be taking a holiday from the show during the summer. The answer is we don’t plan to but we did plan to repeat a couple of playlists from older shows, one in July and one in August.

This week, we’re presenting for the second time a playlist from 2012. Exciting mix of music, including some African-American rock and roll and a feature on the early years of the Atlantic label, whose original owners were oriented to issuing a catalogue of jazz recordings but wound up creating what was perhaps the most influential rhythm & blues catalogue of the 1950s. With the success of its R&B recordings, Atlantic did go on to become a great jazz label in the LP era but that might never have happened had the labels owners and musicians not ensured the label’s survival by tuning their sights to the R&B market while the label was struggling to become established. Our brief survey of Atlantic’s early R&B recordings covers the years 1947 to 1954.

On the Show:

Bo Diddley – Midnighters – Amos Milburn, Jr. – Five Blind Boys of Mississippi – Ruth Brown – Frank “Floorshow” Culley – Professor Longhair – Clovers – Jesse Stone – Z.Z. Hill – Ike & Tina Turner – a.o.

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 August 18th.
