THERE ARE TWO PLAYLISTS BELOW

THIS WEEK’S PROGRAM

+ LAST WEEK’S PLAYLIST

 

 

BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 09/24/17
LIL GREEN & GEORGIA WHITE

A few weeks ago on BBS we featured Ruby Smith and generated much positive feedback. I thought this week we’d profile a couple other Pre WWII singers – Lil Green and Georgia White. Lil had one of the all-time classic recordings with Romance In The Dark and continued to make successful records throughout the 1940s. Georgia White started in the mid 1930s and never made a record after WWII but was one of Chicago’s most popular and enduring performers. She continued to perform in Chicago through the early 1950s. We’ll present records by both artists during Hour #3 - that and all of our other regular features. That’s why we call it Blues Before Sunrise(?) Just tune in – you’ll get it!

BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 9/17/17
THE BIG QUESTION + BOBBY BLAND ON ABC

This week on Blues Before Sunrise we'll examine Life’s Big Questions through Blues records – questions like Is You Is Or Is You Ain’t My Baby – or How Long – How Long (who says size doesn’t matter?) – or Baby What’s Getting’ Wrong With You. We’ll spin ‘em you search for the answers. Then during Hour #4 we’ll listen to records by Bobby Blue Bland on the ABC Label. Bobby was one Of a group of Blues singers who emerged from Memphis In the early 1950s. They were known as the Beale Streeters And included Jr.Parker, Johnny Ace, Roscoe Gordon, and Earl Forrest. Bobby struck gold starting in the mid 1950s with a series of legendary recordings for the Duke Label. This streak of hit recordings lasted almost an entire decade Finally panning out in the mid 1960s - about the time of The British Invasion. Bobby continued to tour and record Non-stop through the years and always had a sizable loyal Black following. Eventually Duke was bought out by the ABC Label and starting in the early 1970s Bobby started On another roll which continued until the early 1980s. We'll be listening to sides from the second run on the ABC Label. I noted among friends for my distaste for Soul-styled Blues - Bobby Bland is the lone exception! Join us - these are great recordings! Bobby Bland on ABC! Only on BBS!
