Halloween Rhythm & Blues

This week, the ol’ Rockola Jukebox is haunted by a strange spirit of rhythm & ghouls. Where is Matt The Cat? We don’t know, but the spirit tells us he will return next week. In his absence, the “Juke In The Back” still fulfills the weekly promise of delivering a solid hour of 1940s and ’50s Rhythm & Blues, but with a Halloween theme this week. Dig on some of your old favorites by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, LaVern Baker and The Hollywood Flames, while also getting a good fright off of seldom heard records by Mad Man Jones, The Sly Fox and Chuck Berry. Plus, a rare 1937 test pressing from Victoria Spivey makes its “Juke” debut with “Witchcraft Blues.” Also, Bobby The Bobcat returns with another spooky Halloween tale from his incredible imagination. So hang on to your souls as the haunted jukebox presents Spooky Halloween Rhythm & Blues.
