Juke in The Back #666 - Hadda BrooksHadda Brooks

Hadda Brooks is one of the most talented boogie woogie musicians of all-time, yet her name doesn't come up nearly as often as Pete Johnson, Champion Jack Dupree or Professor Longhair. That's a shame! This week, the "Juke In The Back" sets the record straight with a heavy dose of the "Queen Of The Boogie." All three of her R&B hits will be played as well as some of her tunes with Pete Johnson and Smokey Hogg. So grab a nickel, a glass of bourbon and your dancin' shoes, as the "Juke In The Back" spotlights Hadda Brooks.
