I hosted Stranger Songs today on CKCU and the show is available to stream, now or any old time, by clicking "Listen Now" on the playlist link.
The theme is "Songs of W.C. Handy," the "Father of the Blues." Hear songs written or adapted by Handy performed by Ella Fitzgerald; Nat King Cole; Bessie Smith; Louis Armstrong & Velma Middleton; Steven Bernstein’s Millennial Territory Orchestra featuring Catherine Russell; W.C. Handy's Beale Street; Mississippi John Hurt; Eartha Kitt with Shorty Rogers & His Giants; Pearl Bailey; Shirley Bassey; Loudon Wainwright III with Sloan Wainwright; Jim Kweskin & The Neo-Passé Jazz Band; Odetta; and Billy Novick's Blue Syncopators.
