Join Pat Frisco Tuesdays from 4pm-6pm for a limited-time radio engagement called "Rollin' and Tumblin'". You may hear Sonny Boy Williamson blowing the harmonica on some 1950's blues singles, Chuck Berry laying down some early rock and roll rhythms, The Stones and Beatles taking it to another level, Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton with some heavy guitar sounds and/or the fusion of psychedelic rock and jazz from the late 60's/early 70's. All carefully assembled into a package that may or may not make perfect sense. Tune in and Turn On! That's Rollin' and Tumblin' starting today at 4pm!
