Blues and Rhythm Show 290 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, September 15, 2020 (10:00 to 12:00 noon)

Our 11th broadcast from home. We had two feature segments this week. The first devoted to Coast Blues, mostly from L.A., mostly from the sixties, following the release of an album from Ace (UK) compiling blues from the Bihari brothers’ Kent label. Later in the show we take a look at a fascinating, if troubling, set from JSP, Protobilly: Minstrel and Tin Pan Alley DNA of Country Music. Basically, the set documents the migration of Minstrel and Vaudeville songs not only into the Hillbilly field but into the Blues and repertoire of black songsters. Some of the songs in the brief selection we chose will be offensive to listeners. Also in the program, some latter-day Soul recordings.

On the Show:

Frank “Floorshow” Culley – Flash Terry – King Solomon – Sonny Rhodes – Big Mama Thornton – Sady Courville & Dennis McGee – Merrill Moore – Cousins & DeMoss – Banjo Joe – May Irwin – Georgia White – Sir Mack Rice – Michelle Willson – and others.

Listen to the program each week at FM 93.3 in Hamilton, live on Cogeco Cable 288 or on CFMU online at cfmu.ca. The program will be available to stream or download until for eight weeks until November 10th as a podcast. Just go the website, bring up the right playlist and stream or download the show.
