The Legends of the Rocking Dutchman - episode 148

Legends Mix

In every episode of the Legends of the Rocking Dutchman you will find some remarkable stories and today's show is no difference. You'll learn about a legendary boxing match in 1938, one that pretty much reflected the international political situation of the moment. Then a jive group with a cuckoo cuckoo name, a stage name of a blueswoman that led to confusion and that sounded too good to be her real name.

Also a racist producer who employed racially integrated bands, and the transformation of a piece of classical music into a jazz masterpiece. Don't miss this show - it's got great music as well.
