The Legends of the Rocking Dutchman - episode 267

Legends Mix

Today's set got a few nice surprises again - like the band of Duke Ellington in disguise on a gospel parody, a very early Julia Lee, the first African-American woman to have her own TV show, and not Snooky Prior.

And I end with some words on the tunes that always start and end this show. Especially the intro music is an obscurity by all means.
