BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 11/3/19
BLACK SWAN WOMEN

This week on BBS we’ll listen to Classic Blues Singers who recorded for the Black Swan Label. A limited few people are fans of the Classic Blues Singers, the women who pioneered Blues recording – beating Blues singing men into the studios by four years. I happen to be among the few who dig Classic Blues Singers but even I find my eyes rolling back in my head if I have to listen to the women on Black Swan. I’d much rather look at the pretty black and gold labels than listen to the lame early efforts found on the records. But I’m more than happy to play them for my lucky listeners – AND as compensation I’m willing to reward listeners brave enough to sit through these relics by awarding them battle ribbons much the same as veterans of WWII received for surviving combat in various theaters of war. Tune in and then contact my agent for your Black Swan battle ribbon.  BTW for those who observe Daylight Savings, this is the weekend we ‘fall back”, which means there will be an extra hour of BBS(!) It’ll only seem like eight hours when I play the Black Swan broads – Only on BBS!
