BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 8/31/14
 BLUES AND THE LITTLE PEOPLE

+

CHICAGO’S FURNITURE MART SESSIONS

This week on Blues Before Sunrise we'll present TWO big features! First we’ll listen to prewar recordings made at Chicago’s famed Furniture Mart, located at the unfortunate address of 666 N. Lake Shore Drive. During the 1920s and 30s the Brunswick, Vocalion and Decca labels made records at the studios located in the Furniture Mart location. We’ll spend the time sorting through and listening to a handful of those sides. Then we’ll dive into our second feature Blues & The Little People – very simply records by artists with the word “Little” and a part of their musicians moniker – Little Walter, Little Hudson, Little Ester, Little Milton, etc. How many more can you think of? Tune in and find out how many more we found.
