Great Show. I'm not much of a Jazz afficinado but some of Charles Brown's stuff reminds me of some really early Rock and Roll tracks from the early 50's. I know this is simply a reflection of Jazz's history. I just think it's a little peculiar.

Thank you for your comment. The first 30 to 40 minutes of the program were recordings from 1946-1950 or so, just before the 'first' rock and roll recordings.
