Welcome to Smokey Joe's Cafe

Welcome to Smokey Joe's Cafe

About the show

Playing tracks by

Wiley Terry, Tommy Ridgley, The Robins, Nina Simone, Ruth Brown and more.

This mix kicks off down tempo with The Robins 'Smokey Joe's Cafe' and slowly steps up the pace with a couple of great tracks including 'Working In A Gold Mine' which has one of the best bass lines ever. Ruth Brown is up with her amazing voice singing about her rather close relationship with her 'Daddy Daddy'. We drink wine with Stick McGhee next closely followed by another killer Ruth Brown tune. Poor Lavern Baker is sandwiched between two Big Joe Turner tracks. Ray Charles has got a woman, 50 years later gold digging Kanye West has also got a woman. We finish with good advice, Jam up...It Don't Mean a Thing...Down in Mexico.

The Beatnik culture permeated every aspect of society. Everyone wanted to be a beatnik. For more about #The Beat Generation listen to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, cool, real cool. http://bit.ly/beatspreak

Got a good few more shows up that you will like! Keep up the cool shows. We should aim to get a Heritage category. I have told Richard Morgan at Mixcloud. Or a retro category! Cheers H
