THIS WEEK…Harlem warms up the BBQ and hits the shore…


This week, Matt The Cat gets away for Summer Vacation 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 Summer Vacation on the road with HARLEM on the 50s on 5.

HARLEM airs on the 50s:
Monday 7/7 @ 1pm in the East
Tuesday 7/8 @ 9pm over LA & Midnight over The Bronx
Friday 7/11 @ 6pm over Cape Cod
Sunday 7/13 @ 11am over Pensacola, FL

Harlem prefers its burgers medium rare.
