Blues and Rhythm Show 120 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, February 25, 2014 (1:00-2:30 pm)

We’ve never devoted a feature to St. Louis–until this week. St. Louis and East St.Louis, across the river in Illinois, supported a unique blues culture that nurtured distinctive styles of playing and singing blues. Like Memphis, St. Louis was a destination for migrants from the south and a staging point for others who wished to go on to the north, especially to Chicago. It was definitely a blues city and, in the late twenties and the thirties, it attracted musicians like Lonnie Johnson, Joe Lee Williams and Roosevelt Sykes.

On the Show:

Ciro’s Coon Club Orchestra – St. Louis Bessie – Henry Brown – Henry Townsend – Charley Jordan – Peetie Wheatstraw – St. Louis Jimmy – Charlie “Specks” McFadden – Johnnie Strauss – Teddy Darby – Milton Sparks – and others

Listen to the program at FM 93.3 in Hamilton or on CFMU online at cfmu.mcmaster.ca. The program will be available to stream or as a podcast until March 24th.
