This week we hear some interesting cover versions - in the true sense of the word, competing versions of the same song - along with some hot Hawaiian guitar, one of the best jubilee gospel groups, another new song from Big Fancy, blues from Brandon Isaak, one of Mable Smith's early recordings before she was Big Maybelle, all topped off with Sam Cooke and the Soul Stirrers - a "can't miss" show to be sure.
Backbeat is also available in a 56-minute version with breaks. I am happy to provide custom station IDs, promos and liners. Email or visit for more information.
