The African American Roots of Rock and Roll

Today on Linx Mix, we will be going back in time to see who the real founders of rock & roll were! From Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith, Blind Lemon Jefferson, and Blind Willie McTell, up through Chuck Berry, Little Richard, and Bo Diddley, you’ll hear the African American original cuts, before the songs were covered by white musicians to reach larger audiences in North America. A show not to be missed, catch it live, or on archive!
