BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 5/21/17

DARK HOUR BLUES

This week on BBS two programming projects. During Hour #2 we’ll be spinning sides by Camille Howard. Originally out of Texas she settled in Los Angeles and held down the piano chair in Roy Milton’s Solid Senders. They recorded extensively for Art Rupe’s Specialty Label and after awhile Art decided to record Camille under her own name – those are the recordings we’ll be listening to. Also during the final three hours of this week’s show we’ll be playing records that have the word “Dark” in the title. There are lots of great records AND artists on this week’s list. We turn light out of darkness.

Only On BBS!
