THIS WEEK…It’s over the R&B; river and through the soulful woods…


This week, Matt The Cat gets away for THANKSGIVING as HARLEM takes to America’s highways, skyways and oceans. We’re featuring an hour of 1950s R&B; songs about cars (Rocket 88), trains (The Train Kept A-Rolling), Boats (The Ship Of Love) and of course flying in a satellite (My Satellite by Jesse Belvin). It’s all about gettin’ to where you’re going (Destination Love) and beyond. I just hope we don’t get stuck (Flat Tire). So enjoy your Thanksgiving Weekend on the road with HARLEM on the 50s on 5.

Monday 11/19 @ 1pm in the East
Tuesday 11/20 @ 9pm over LA & Midnight over The Bronx

Remember, the stuffing goes INSIDE the turkey!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my cats n’ kittens.
