1948: Jukebox Rhythm Review, Pt. 2

The jukebox takes center stages as we travel back 70 years to dig on the hep sounds of 1948. This week, in part 2 of 2, the “Juke In The Back” features the biggest jukebox hits of the last half of 1948. You’ll jump to records by Rosetta Howard, Memphis Slim, Pee Wee Crayton, Hal Singer, Sonny Thompson and many more. Dig on early sides by Amos Milburn and The Orioles as well as Arbee Stidham’s only chart hit. Plus, the bones, an ancient folk instrument is featured on one of the year’s most enduring records. We’ve got souring instrumentals, jump blues, crooners and vocal groups, so grab a fist full of nickels and get ready to celebrate part 2 of 1948 on this week’s “Juke In The Back” with Matt The Cat.
