With East Side Slim
East Side Slim takes you cruising on many musical roads, with all leading back to the crossroad - the blues. Come on along for the ride on Rhythm Highways. You'll hear American music - music that swings, rolls and comes from the soul. Tune in to hear blues, R&B, gospel, swing, soul, rock 'n' roll, jazz and roadhouse, even the occasional honky tonk or western swing song. Rhythm Highways - it's an East Side groove.
