500 Songs Episode 2 Now Up!

Episode 2 of A History of Rock Music in 500 Songs is now up on the website, and should be on the podcast’s iTunes feed in a couple of hours.

This one is on “Roll ‘Em Pete” by Big Joe Turner and Pete Johnson and covers, among other things, the longest entertainment strike in US history, blues shouting, booglie wooglie piggies, a show sponsored by the Communist Party, and hokum songs. It covers a *lot* of ground, actually.

There’s also a Mixcloud playlist of all the music you hear excerpted in the episode, which you can stream here.

If you like the podcast, please tell someone about it, and if you can also support me on Patreon.
