Cool Yule: R&B Christmas, Pt. 2

The “Juke In The Back” presents part 2 of our 2 part vintage Christmas Rhythm & Blues extravaganza that Matt The Cat is calling “Cool Yule.” Louis Armstrong presents the title song with a backing group that is often overlooked and we spin a Louis Jordan Christmas record that’s hardly ever played. In-between, you’ll find doo wop morsels from The Cameos, Marvin & The Chips, The Youngsters and a rare early Sun Ra release by The Qualities. Chuck Berry thanks his baby for a wonderful Christmas while Charles Brown asks his sweetheart to come home and Sister Rosetta Tharpe slays us with a traditional hymn. We’ll take a look at our New Year’s plans and Miss Rosie provides a shopping guide for those near and dear or far and away. So grab the nog, light the tree and get ready to dig all the Cool Yule sounds on this week’s holiday “Juke In The Back.”
