R&B Novelty Songs

We are living in some strange times and we could all use a little laugh to brighten the mood. Matt The Cat has put together a solid program of tunes to split your sides and make you smile as he presents Rhythm and Blues Novelty Songs on this week’s “Juke In The Back.” These “novelty” R&B tunes come from jump blues masters from Louis Jordan to Bull Moose Jackson and all the side-splittin’ jive in-between. You’ll hear all about Richard Berry, Wynonie Harris, Andre Williams and Dusty Fletcher getting in trouble with the law as well as a wacky song about crazy food. Join Matt The Cat for a hilarious look at the “soul that came before rock n’ roll” on “Juke In The Back.”
