Episode #579 – R&B Car Songs

Air Week: June 7-13, 2021

R&B Car Songs


The juke is jumpin’ with records focusing on classic R&B songs about cars. The automobile is a “road tested” symbol of the American Dream. We have all this land and the car gives us the freedom to get from one place to another. We’ll dig on some tunes about Cadillacs, Buicks, Mercurys and Model Ts. Chuck Berry, who made his early career on youth-oriented car songs will make a few appearances. Plus, musicologists Billy Vera and Steve Propes drop by the “Juke In The Back” to make their cases that the first rock n’ roll song might have been about a car. So grab your keys and prepare to be taken for a ride on this week’s “Juke In The Back” with Matt The Cat.
