Summertime R&B: 4th of July, Food & Baseball Songs

The Juke In The Back jumps into summer by spotlighting THE summertime holiday, the 4th of July. We’re diggin’ the 4th in song, ranging from songs about summertime by Sam Cooke, Chuck Berry and The Basin Street Boys to songs about summertime foods from Chris Powell and John Brim. We’ll also focus on America’s pastime with R&B songs about Baseball, honoring some of the top players who crossed over from the Negro Leagues into the Major Leagues. Records from Buddy Johnson, Brownie McGhee and Jack Williams are highlights as we cruise America’s great highways jiving to the true songs of Summer. Grab some nickels, suntan lotion, a hot dog and meet us at the ballpark, where the Juke In The Back will be jumpin’!
