A cross-reference to the first overnight radio show (CKCU 93.1 FM) placing a heavy emphasis on Canadian blues and fusions of same (2007-2012). From 2012-2014, "Rockin' the Blues from Canada" was broadcast on CHMR 93.5 FM (where it originated in 2005 as "Patchwork Blues"). This 'blog' was born in 2004 as a promotional tool for arts-related news when Geocites reclaimed its free websites.

GREAT BIG ROCK JAM REPORT - OCT. 20/12
This just in – blueswoman Sunday Wilde of Atikokan, ON, has
just become engaged – congratulations, girl!
Here are just a few mentions of new releases from Canadian
Guelph, Ontario, blueswoman Gayle Ackroyd Gibson,
recording simply under the name, Gayle Ackroyd, has a new CD out, called Give It All You Got.I’ll be playing a track from that – a Neville
Brothers’ tune entitled “Yellow Moon”, on next week’s show.
For jazz music-lovers, Toronto-based Donna Greenberg has
released a multilingual (mainly English, French and Spanish) selection of
material entitled Song in the Wind.
Lindi Ortega, also of Toronto,
but rumoured to be hanging out somewhere in Tennessee these days, has just released Cigarettes & Truckstops.She’s currently on tour, hitting the
Metropolis in Montreal on the 23rd of
this month, the Roseland Ballroom in NYC on the 26th, and gradually
heading south to Atlanta, Chattanooga,
and San Antonio.
Toronto-based Lily Frost has just released a new CD, as
well, entitled Do What You Love.That release is now also in CHMR’s humongous
music library, and hopefully I will get a chance to play something from it in
the near future.There has actually been
a ton of new releases added to the library since I started back here at the end
of June, but as I usually program my shows in advance using my own
ever-increasing music collection, playlist selections taken from the library
tend to be quite rare.It’s simply not
practical for me.
The new-generation blues music collective known as The 24th
Street Wailers, hot on the 2012 release of Unshakeable,
is set to record a live album at Bearly’s House of Blues and Ribs in Halifax,
NS, on November 9.Speaking of Halifax, it is the home
of the East Coast Blues Society.The
organization welcomes musicians from the province of NL,
so check them out at eastcoastblues.ca.
I’m Honey Girl, and I’ll be right back with more “Iron
Maidens”, a program comprised of music composed and/or recorded by women
determined to succeed in the industry alongside their male peers.Playlist selections include male-female duos
or ensembles comprised of both genders.
