The Legends of the Rocking Dutchman - episode 211

Legends Mix

A great mix again today, containing some of the finest gems of twenties to fifties Rhythm & Blues. So today you can expect growling trumpets and scat vocals, Southern nostalgy, the solution for when you can't read and can't write, a rip-off, a musician booted, an instrumental from a vocal group, blues from a bebop combo, a lost mind and a bimbo.

What else can you expect?
