American Jukebox Playlist 23/6/14


This week we welcomed summer with a feel-good set of sizzling hot tunes for the season. And we paid homage to “X” radio- those Mexican “Border Blasters” that paved the way for a cultural sea change in America, complete with a tribute to Wolfman Jack.

Next Monday, tune in live at 10pm GMT on Oban FM as I celebrate the 60th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s first concert- and tell how he “invented” his signature leg shake. Plus a tribute to the Muscle Shoals sound with Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Wilson Pickett and more!
