Chart positions

This show was 27th in the global rhythm and blues chart and 48th in the global rock and roll chart.

This week we celebrate the 97th anniversary of the birth Wilbert "Red" Prysock, who was one of the early Coleman Hawkins-influenced tenor saxophonists to move in the direction of rhythm and blues, rather than bebop.

WRFG Route 66 pays tribute to a unique time when blues, jazz, and R&B were all on the same page and often in the same song. The focus is on the music of the Jump Blues and Early Rock’n’roll Eras of the 1940s & 1950s and on how those styles have evolved over the years.

Listen to WRFG Route 66 Sunday from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. Eastern on WRFG 89.3 FM, Atlanta. Your independent community radio station for progressive information and handpicked, quality music is streaming worldwide over the free WRFG mobile app and WRFG.ORG.
