Join us as we explore the roots of Rock 'n' Roll in 1940s Blues and Rhythm and Blues. Great, rare and classic performances from T-Bone Walker, Jimmy Liggins, Pee Wee Crayton, Roy Milton, Muddy Waters, Memphis Slim, Jazz Gillum, John Lee Hooker, Snooky Pryor, Smokey Hogg, Baby Boy Warren, and more. Just because Rock 'n' Roll hadn't been invented yet didn't mean these cats didn't know how to boogie -- quite the contrary -- roll up the rug and put on your dancing shoes for two solid hours of 1940s-styled Rhythm Rockin' Blues.
Pictured: Featured on this episode, the one and only Lavada Durst — better known to his fans and blues lovers everywhere as “Dr. Hepcat.”
