Juke in the Back R&B Christmas Friday at 12:00 Noon

Kick back Christmas Day with us at noon and enjoy some vintage Rhythm & Blues Christmas tunes spun by host Matt The Cat on Juke in the Back's Rhythm & Blues Christmas.

It's the yuletide soul before rock n' roll from the late 1940s and 1950's. From all-time classics by Clyde McPhatter & The Drifters and The Orioles to some rarer Christmas platters from Amos Milburn, JB Summers and The Five Keys. Groove to the cool yule!
