THERE ARE TWO PLAYLISTS BELOW

THIS WEEK’S PROGRAM

+ NEXT WEEK’S PLAYLIST

 

BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 10/20/19
A WILLIE MABON BIRTHDAY

This week on BBS we’ll celebrate the birthday of Blues pianist Willie Mabon. In beating around the Chicago Blues Scene Willie managed to record for the Apollo label under his own name and with a group called the Blues Rockers for the Aristocrat label in 1949. His next appearance on record was a strike of lightening with a tune lifted from Chicago House Rent pianist Crippled Clarence Lofton, I Don’t Know. The record was so popular that Deejay Al Benson – The Old Swingmaster- couldn’t press enough copies to fill demands so he turned the record and Willie’s contract over to the Chess Brothers. Over the next three years Willie recorded over two dozen sides exclusively for the Chess label including Seventh Son, Poison Ivy, I’m Mad, Would You Baby, Knock On Wood and many others. We’ll celebrate his birthday by spinning as many sides as time allows. Plus, we’ll hear records by Eddie Miller, Elmore Nixon, Rev A.W. Nix, Ramblin’ Thomas, Nappy Brown, Jerry McCain, The Four Blazes and much, much more. Also don’t forget our continuing series The Complete Wynonie Harris. This week session #21 in our series. Only on BBS!

BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 10/13/19
LISTEN MAC!

Our theme this week follows a social trend that might better be explained by an anthropologist. I’m not sure exactly how it happened but there seem to be many Blues and R&B artists with the last name beginning with Mac or Mc commonly associated with Scot’s ancestry. We’ll spend the time playing records by as many of these "Black Scotsmen" as we can find. Among the artists we’ll be listening to will be the McCains, McCoys, McCracklins, McDaniels, McDowells, McGhees, McKinleys, McRaes, McShanns, McTells, McVeas. ALSO the McAbees, McClains, McClennens, McClintocks, McClures, McCollums, McDavids, McDonalds, McFaddens, Mac Farlands, McGraws, McIntorsh, McKays, McKenzies, McKinneys, McMullens, McPhails, and McPhearsons(Phew!) Great music - great fun this week on BBS! Join us for Listen Mac!
