THERE ARE TWO PLAYLISTS BELOW

THIS WEEK’S PROGRAM

+ LAST WEEK’S PLAYLIST

 

 

BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 7/15/18
PROFILING 1955 IN TERMS OF BLUES RECORDS

This week on Blues Before Sunrise we search the new Blues Discography from Eyeball Productions to collect and present records made in the year 1955. First we'll spend an hour listening to records whose listings indicated no specific month in their recording date - they were made in 1955 and we leave the specifics to your imagination. Then we break down the year 1955 month-by-month and playing records made during each month. It's fun, it's fascinating and it gives us an excuse to present artists we might otherwise overlook! The Classics! The Obscurities! - Only On BBS!
