The Spin I’m In: Red, White and Blue Suede Shoes

Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash at Sun Studios in Memphis.

This week’s playlist is inspired by a terrific show that I’m listening to right now on National Public Radio called Whole Lotta Shakin’. It’s a history of rockabilly hosted by Rosie Flores. Something to be proud of.
