Episode #683 – Rhythm & Booze: Bad, Bad Whiskey!

Air Week: June 5-11, 2023

Rhythm & Booze: Bad, Bad Whiskey!

The “Juke In The Back” once again raises a glass in our Rhythm & Booze series. This time, the entire program is dedicated to that Bad, Bad Whiskey. For some, whiskey ruined their happy home, but for others, a Half-Pint-A Whiskey set the stage for good times. Lucky Millinder along with Wynonie Harris (his first time on record) will ask that musical question of “Who Threw The Whiskey In The Well,” and Bull Moose Jackson will answer it accordingly. Amos Milburn is the star of the show as no other R&B artist sang so often and so thoroughly about booze, especially whiskey. Matt The Cat spins three of Milburns’ whiskey platters as well as two solo whiskey sides from Wynonie Harris. We’ll go swimming in a sea of whiskey with Willie Dixon and his Big Three Trio and find out if whiskey helps your gambling habit with Sticks McGhee. So pour the bourbon, scotch and corn whiskey as we get all hopped up on that juice for this week’s “Juke In The Back” and the “soul that came BEFORE Rock n’ Roll.”
