Tune in for some evocative, exciting sides from Cab Calloway, Bill ‘Bojangles’ Robinson, Dixieland Jug Blowers, The Three Keys, Eddie Johnson & His Cracker-Jacks, The Charleston Chasers, Joe Venuti & Eddie Lang, Lee Wiley with Jess Stacy and more.

That’s Sunday, September 24th, 1pm MT, for Hot Jazz from Hot 78s on Rooooy’s Record Room, the show that unravels and reveals the roots of today’s tunes, for the pure joy of it.

11 years and counting!
