Broke'n Blue Boogaloo on Subcity Radio

Just picked up a mesage on the Broke'N Blue Boogaloo show on the Subcity station.

The show is described as:

The sound of a cotton field in Georgia, a prison in Mississippi, a church in Alabama, a parade in New Orleans, a studio in Memphis, a bar in Chicago, a factory in Detroit, and a basement in New York all rolled into one. Every week we serve up an hour chock full of chunky boogaloo, barrelhouse blues, sock hop swing, dancefloor jazz and dirty down home funk. We spin everything from the slinky, sleazy, sultry and sassy, to the deep, dark, and downright depraved. Expect hip-shakin' hammonds, screeching horns and full fat breaks, alongside honky tonk pianos, gritty vocals and 12 string guitars. Harrowing gutter blues, and rough tough slabs of funk, sit with blissful bossa novas, and relentless boogaloo workouts; in an all encompassing celebration of soul music.
Here's the latest playlist:
Jimmy Smith - Stay Loose
Placebo - Humpty Dumpty
Rosalind Madison - Fancy
Koko Taylor - Don't Mess With The Messer
Mahlia Jackson - I'm On My Way
The Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band - Giggin' Down 103rd
