"Holy (4 day!) Week!" (Podcast Title)
Here's to Holy-4-day-Week, for Christians, working stiffs and anyone else...
I wanted to do a gospel history theme for a little while, as I haven't done one in a long time... Black History Month seemed like a good time, but other ideas kept coming like popcorn, so now let's enjoy some thumping, smoking gospel sounds and find out a thing or two about gospel music, it's relationship to established hymns, and such...
I also talked about Thomas Andrew "Georgia Tom" Dorsey, Chicago's Pilgrim Baptist Church, Black Nova Scotian history, and more...
As usual, things started off with a few Canadian selections including a Bob Burchill album with, uh, religious over-and-undertones, which I just picked up and a surprising jam from Measha Brueggergosman on a Jesus tip.
Tonight we heard...
Neil Young - Everybody Knows... / Winterlong- live in Cincinnati '70 from l.p.

"Ontario Family Day International Black History Month" (Podcast Title)
Black History Month continues... With some background on the dance/ church/ social scene in Southwestern Ontario, as I have been checking out the book Breaking Loose, about historic Black communities of southwestern Ontario, at the end of the Underground Railroad.
For Family Day, that is today's legal holiday in Ontario, the rest of the music played will be from family relations, because, tonight, we are...
Keepin' it in the family...
Also, I put out some background on the Black Canadian Vinyl Rarity, Floyd Lawson and the Hearts of Stone - Comin Out, an extremely rare album I learned about after checking out the dodgy Canadian Racer comp... this is some Ottawa area funk via Philadelphia and Motown... I found a copy of the reissue, itself a rarity already with only 500 copies pressed, with Floyd's cooperation and consent on the Afrokat label.
Also, thought I'd mention Claudette Colvin's mostly forgotten role in the Civil Rights struggle...
And in more old civil rights cases in the news again, seven of nine men convicted of trespassing for sitting at a whites-only counter in Alabama 1961, they were exonerated a week or three ago...
Lettuce w. Nigel Hall- Do it Like You Do- playing T.O. This week-
Floyd Lawson and the Hearts of Stone- the second side of their second album,
Feat. Oil in the Ground, Love Won't Let me Wait, Rated X, Air That I Breathe, Only Takes A Minute

Dianne Brooks- To Make You Happy, Memories- the latter I talked over-
The rest of tonight's show features acts which include blood relations - I.e. no married couples performing for the purpose of tonight's Family Day thang...
Staples Singers- Freedom Highway- live Fillmore West 68
Robert Randolph and the Family Band - BillieJean- live Phoenix '04
