We’re bringing another edition of our Barrelhouse parties — jams where we spin songs from the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s. You’ll hear Jump Blues, Hot Jazz, Swing, nitty gritty Rhythm and Blues.
The next one is a tribute to that great Harlem nightspot of yore, The Savoy.
Mama Cutsworth and DJ Dryhump present:

Somehow thirteen years have passed since I first walked into the CKUW studio and tried my hand at making radio. Stylus Radio began on May 8th, 2001 as a music magazine show (i.e. we did a lot of interviews and reviews) and I had two co-hosts: Tom Wilson and Matt Hannam (shout outs to you [...]
