500 Songs: Blueberry Hill

https://www.500songs.com/e/episode-45-blueberry-hill-by-fats-domino/

Episode forty-five of A History of Rock Music in Five Hundred Songs looks at “Blueberry Hill” by Fats Domino, and at how the racial tensions of the fifties meant that a smiling, diffident, cheerful man playing happy music ended up starting riots all over the US.

And on Patreon, a backer-only bonus episode, on Hardrock Gunter, who was very aptly named but also had hard luck.
