Blues and Rhythm Show 325 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, August 10, 2021 (10:00 to 12:00 noon)

Breaking with our usual seriousness and high purpose this week we present “The Poultry Show”, a couple of hours of midsummer foolishness, songs about or referencing all manner of fowl–chickens, ducks, turkeys, etc. This program turned out to be as difficult to put together as any other show and we have forgotten why we thought it might be a good idea in the first place but it’s all in the audiofile now.

“Down in the hen house on my knees, I thought I heard a chicken sneeze” — Henry “Red” Allen

“Boy, you ever do anything like stealin’ chickens?” — Frank Stokes

On the Show:

Cab Calloway – Amos Milburn – Peppermint Harris – Stephen Barry Band – Walter Rhodes – Skillet Lickers – Reave’s White County Ramblers – Arlean Brown – King Herbert & the Knights – Alfredo Mendieta – Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys – Griffin Brothers with Margie Day – Lula Reed – Sidemen – Lascelle Perkins – Mississippi John Hurt – and others

Listen to the program each week at FM 93.3 in Hamilton or on CFMU online at cfmu.ca. The program will be available to stream or download until for eight weeks until October 5th as a podcast. Just go the website, scroll through 40 shows to Tuesday 10:00 am bring up the right playlist and stream or download the show.

Next Week:

We’ll be off again next week. There will be a repeat broadcast. We’ll tell you what is playing closer to the broadcast date.
