WRFG Route 66 Playlist and Podcast January 29, 2023

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.

Ruth Brown (Born Ruth Weston in Portsmouth, Virginia on January 12, 1928)
was an American singer-songwriter and actress, sometimes referred to as the
“Queen of R&B”. She was noted for bringing a pop music style to R&B music in
a series of hit songs for Atlantic Records in the 1950s, such as “So Long”, “Teardrops
from My Eyes” and “(Mama) He Treats Your Daughter Mean”.For these contributions, Atlantic became known as “the house that Ruth built”(alluding to the popular
nickname for the old Yankee Stadium). Brown was a 1993 inductee into the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. – wikipedia.org
