Episode #9- Saturday Night and Sunday Morning: Rascally Paramours, Satan's Burning Hell, Reefer and

This episode of the Old, Dingy Jukebox features records about sin and redemption. Songs for Saturday nights and songs for Sunday mornings. I thought it would be a fun idea to have an episode that features records of various styles of music dealing with these two contrasting worlds. Harcore honky tonk, blues, hokum, gospel preaching, vocal groups and country.

Hope you enjoy episode #9: “Rascally Paramours, Satan’s Burning Hell, Reefer and Streets of Glory.”
