Podcast - Legendary Women of Rhythm & Blues


Roustabout Radio

Dandy DJ Duo, The Roustabouts, present a show celebrating the all-too-often-forgotten women of Rhythm & Blues! With nearly an hour of handpicked, classic vintage tracks and a little about the stories behind them, Mark Charade and Anna Swiczeniuk take a look at the badass women that sowed the seeds of Rock & Roll!

There are stories of openly bisexual gospel singers, music executives getting battered with handbags, a performer returning from the grave in Vietnam... and just how does Morticia Addams fit into all of this?

Featuring Big Mama Thornton, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Ruth Brown, Big Maybelle, Lavern Baker and many more!
