THIS WEEK’S PROGRAM

+ NEXT WEEK’S PLAYLIST

 

 

BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 9/22/19
MAGIC SLIM & THE TEARDROPS

THE SINGLES

This week on BBS we’ll listen to early recordings by Chicago Bluesman Magic Slim & The Teardrops. During my four years with Magic Slim my mission was to get the band gigs on the northside of Chicago and in front of a white audience where the band could make much better money. Better pay was only one of many differences between performing for a white audience on the northside and the black audiences found in the clubs in Englewood. Another difference was in the band’s stage patter to the audience. At the 1125 Club, Magic Slim’s home club, PC (political correctness) went out the window as members of the band would brashly try to attract women by talking about their sexual prowess – “When your mama quits your Daddy – that’s a break for me!” or “I’m ready to tear-up an iron bed!” – or “My dick’s harder than Chinese arithmetic – so hard a cat can’t scratch it!” And then there was the night Slim claimed he was “...tired of women. I’m going over to Michael Reese Hospital and get me a sissy!” Another memorable pitch came from our second guitar player Jr. Pettis – “I’m looking for a woman! I’m lonely and I think you’re lonely too! So if you’re lonely come on home with me – come on home to Daddy Rabbit!” Slim and Nick and I never let him forget it and from that point on he was known as Daddy Rabbit. During Hour #4 we’ll listen to sides by Magic Slim and the band, the series of singles they recorded before the first LP, before they broke out to the Northside - and the world! Only on BBS!

BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 9/15/19
BBS EAST COAST HOUSE RENT PARTY

+ LATER RECORDINGS BY

ALBERTA HUNTER & ETHEL WATERS

This week on BBS we hold our first annual East Coast House Rent Party. Recently my landlord, Mr DiFranco, here at Parmesan Place has suggested that a display of good faith such as paying my rent on time (“For once!”) might convince him not to have my head turned into a wind instrument. And I, in turn, have decided to act on this gentle reminder by scraping together “all” the rent. To help raise that money we’re throwing a house rent party. For the price of admission we’ll provide both refreshments and entertainment. A while back when Jimmy McGriff and Joe Carroll fell behind with the numbers man I helped them cover – now they return the favor by performing at our party. It all happens during Hour #1. Also – When the era of the Classic Blues Singers had ground to a halt and the days of even the biggest stars were over in the recording studios, two women adjusted to the changing tastes and continued their career on stage and in the studio. During Hour #3 we’ll listen to later recordings by Alberta Hunter and Ethel Waters. Join us as we celebrate the later work of these two persistent stars!

Only on BBS!
