Thanks to everyone who came out for our first ever Jumpin’ with Route 66 party at Blind Willie’s Blues Club. It was a smashing success and raised a good deal of cash for our favorite radio station.

We also want to thank Marian D. for sitting in Sunday morning so we could be daisy fresh (yeah, right) for the big show.

You can hear Route 66 on Sunday from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. Eastern on Atlanta’s WRFG 89.3 FM. Your independent community radio station is heard worldwide over our free mobile app and WRFG.ORG.

Please follow us on Facebook.

Here’s your WRFG Route 66 Playlist for Sunday, April 7, 2019

Host: Marian
Birthday: Billie Holiday was born Eleanora Fagan in Philadelphia on April 7, 1915.
Note: You may notice an abundance of Louis Jordan tunes on the list, we did that because a tribute to Louis was part of our show at Blind Willie’s.
