BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 9/14/14
RECORDING TO BEAT THE BAN

This week on Blues Before Sunrise we'll revisit a theme originally presented on the program twenty years ago – Recording To Beat The Ban. During WWII among the many material shortages experienced by the allies was shellac which was used to make phonograph records. So a ban on recording was called. The ban started August 1rst 1942 and in the months prior to it’s start many of the major recording companies rushed their artists into the studio to stockpile sides that would be released over the duration. We’ll spend our time playing sides that were recorded during the last ten days before the ban including sides by Jimmy Rushing, Cab Calloway, Lucky Millinder, June Richmond, Louis Jordan, the Ink Spots + many sides by downhome artists including Tampa Red, Big Maceo, and Sonny Boy I.
