Classic 40’s: Show 213


The 1940’s was the decade of war and invention.  The T-shirt was invented, along with the microwave, ballpoint pens, bikinis, polaroid cameras, the JEEP, the Atomic Bomb and the electric guitar.  For music there was a blending of sounds, and new terms like “Folk”, “Country” and “Bebop” branched out of the blues going there own way, but the blues will always be the blues.

Joining Louis is Billie Holiday, Ink Spots, Muddy Waters, T-bone Walker, Lightnin Hopkins, Ruth Brown and more…
