THIS WEEK’S PROGRAM

+ NEXT WEEK’S PLAYLIST

 

 

BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 7/21/19
BLUES BY JESSIE MAE ROBINSON

This week on BBS we listen to sides composed by Jessie Mae Robinson. Jessie was a black woman who wrote Blues tunes popular during the 1940s and 1950s including the classics Black Night and Blue Light Boogie. There were many more and our program is the perfect showcase for her work. The artists that recorded her compositions include Dinah Washington, T-Bone Walker, Eddie ‘Cleanhead’ Vinson, Charles Brown, B.B. King, Bobby Bland, Percy Mayfield and many more. Plus – Don’t forget our continuing Complete Wynonie Harris series. Each week we listen to a complete recording session. This week it’s session #11 in Wynonie’s career and the first session for the King label where the majority of his work will be found. During Hour #4 we step down in the alley where we’ll hear Jimmy Reed, Roscoe

Gordan, Jerry McCain, Frank Frost, Freddy King, and Memphis Slim.

Only on BBS!
