Rhythm & Blues Car Songs this week on The Juke in the Back

The juke is jumpin’ with records focusing on classic R&B songs about cars.  The automobile is a “road tested” symbol of the American Dream.  We have all this land and the car gives us the freedom to get from one place to another.  We’ll dig on some tunes about Cadillacs, Buicks, Mercurys and Model Ts. Plus, musicologists Billy Vera and Steve Propes drop by the “Juke In The Back” to make their cases that the first rock n’ roll song might have been about a car.

The Swallows this week on The Juke in the Back

The Swallows were one of the most underrated R&B vocal groups of the early 1950s. Hailing from Baltimore, they only scored 2 top 10 R&B hits during their 3 year stint with King Records, but collectors and aficionados know their catalog inside and out. The Swallows’ original lead tenor, Eddie Rich, joins Matt The Cat on the “Juke In The Back” with his first-hand account of scoring a hit record, life on the road, segregation and playing with the top artists of the day.
