The Legends of the Rocking Dutchman - episode 48

Ladies sing the blues

Today the ladies are singing of heartbreak and no good men, their man taken away from home by Uncle Sam or about their ability to steal men from other women. Women's blues definitely are a kind apart and I packed some great songs in today's show.

And maybe the best of them are recorded in the thirties, so there's some real old stuff on today's playlist. Enjoy!
