It’s all about the birthdays today on this Hiroshima Day edition of the Rockhouse. We’ll dive deep to celebrate the birthdays of Ronnie Spector (August 10) and Joe Tex (August 8) by listening to lots and lots of girls, and lots and lots of long, soulful raps.
The crickets started chirping this week, Residents. With that in mind, we encourage you to seize the day and listen to this entire show! We’ll celebrate the twin August/Arkansas/Jimmy birthdays of McCracklin and Witherspoon with a lengthy set of music recorded for the Modern family of labels. We’ll also hear new music by Robert Cray and preview this weekend’s show by Tab Benoit.
