THERE ARE TWO PLAYLISTS BELOW

THIS WEEK’S PROGRAM

+ NEXT WEEK’S PLAYLIST

 

BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 1/13/19
HARLEM HAMFATS

This week on Blues Before Sunrise we’ll be working off an old playlist from 10/23/1994. It’s not a tape of the program that originally was broadcast on this date but a newly recorded program using the records listed here. I think it’s fair to say that my program covers a wide variety of music. Within that wide variety there are only a few artists I don’t like - Sleepy John Estes, Mississippi Sheiks and the Harlem Hamfats. This week we’ll devote Hour #3 to the Hamfats. It’s sorta Jazz-meets-Blues- meets-Hokum. Sort for yourself, you might like ‘em! - only on Blues Before Sunrise!

BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 1/6/19
CHARLES AVERY ACCOMPANIES

This week on Blues Before Sunrise we'll start the new year right – we’ll be listening to sides featuring the piano of Charles Avery. Charles was an underrated House Rent pianist from Chicago during the 1920s. When this idea originally came to me I thought it might be one of the shortest features in BBS. Much to my surprize I found that Avery was on 23 different sides including one title under his own name. He also accompanied six different singers including Lucille Bogan, Willie Harris, Lil Johnson, Freddie Nicholson, Dirty Red Nelson, and Victoria Spivey. We can play just about everything in one hour. Hey - let's do it! You'll be familiar with Charles Avery before this show's through - Amaze your friends! - We're glad to help! Only on BBS!
