Blues and Rhythm Show 298 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, December 1, 2020 (10:00 to 12:00 noon)

This week’s program is all Gospel. Our original notion was to trace the history of Gospel recordings from the beginning. but that was probably too ambitious for a two hour program. We decided to limit the show’s attention to post-war Gospel and then looking at the widespread concept of Gospel’s Golden Age. Our playlist includes Gospel groups, quartets, soloists and singing preachers, some of whom played instruments. In some cases we have chosen the obvious and celebrated sides of well-known artists and in others the more obscure recordings in the discography.

On the Show:

Staple Singers – Wings of Jordan Choir – Dixie Hummingbirds – Pilgrim Travelers – Famous Ward Singers – Brother Joe May – Goldia Haynes – Swan Silvertone Singers – Elder Charles Beck – Blind Boys of Alabama – Edna Gallmon Cooke – Rev. Cleophus Robinson with Josephine James – Swanee Quintet – Sensational Nightingales – 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 January 19th as a podcast. Couldn’t be much easier. Just go the website, click on “Shows”, scroll down through 40 different programs to Tuesday, 10:00am bring up the playlist you choose, and stream or download the show.
