Harlem is GOING…GOING….GONE!!!

Rhythm & Blues Baseball Songs

In 1947, Jackie Robinson and Larry Doby injected hope into the hearts of millions of Americans as they broke down the colour-barrier in major league baseball. This joy is reflected in the rhythm and blues music that emerged. This week, Matt The Cat takes you out to the ol’ ballgame with stacks of hot wax celebrating America’s great pastime. Celebrate XM’s coverage of MLB’s Fall Classic (The World Series) with HARLEM on the 50s on 5.
