WRFG Route 66 Playlist and Podcast December 25, 2022

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

Cab Calloway was an American singer, songwriter, bandleader, conductor and
