With Jeff Perry

A look at the week in music history... major releases, number one singles and albums, musical birthdays and more. Listen as host Jeff Perry recounts the week's musical milestones and the songs that go with them, concentrating on the 1940's to the 1990's.

This Week In Music History - show 347

Musical milestones-- Elvis Presley arrived in Madison just in the nick of time to save the day, The Beatles performed a song for the entire world, Prince released a blockbuster hit, and The Kinks had a run-in with a notorious bad guy. I’ll spin tunes by Nina Simone, Peggy Lee and The Animals, and celebrate the musical birthdays of Ray Davies, Todd Rundgren, June Carter Cash, Chet Atkins, Scott Avett of The Avett Brothers, Mickie Most, George Michael, and Eddie Floyd. Plus my kids tell jokes.
