WRFG Route 66 Playlist and Podcast March 13, 2022

WRFG Route 66 celebrates a bygone time when blues, jazz, and R&B blended
together, often in the same song. The focus is on the music of the Jump Blues
and Early Rock’n’Roll Eras (1940s to mid-1950s) and on how those styles
have evolved over the years.

Listen Sunday from 7:00 to 9:00 AM Eastern on Atlanta’s
WRFG 89.3FM. Your independent community radio station is streaming
worldwide over our free mobile app, TuneIn, radio.garden, and WRFG.ORG.
