Music/Rock

With Pete Lee

With your genial host, Mr. Lee, and a cast of pomaded thousands.

Send Mr. Lee an e-mail.

Mainly Rhythm & Blues, along with other sometimes only distantly related stuff, from the 1940s and 1950s: big voice blues shouters, honking tenor saxophones, fine - fine - superfine vocal group harmony, and powerful women of rhythm and blues.

Don't believe it's possible? Listen to one of the shows from the archives.
