This week we hear an African song that became a huge popular hit in North America in the 1950s that isn't called The Lion Sleeps Tonight and we discover one of the great musical talents of the swing era that almost nobody knows about (that's her in the picture). We'll also pair two records that are almost 100 years apart - one of Fats Waller's first recordings from the 1920s and new blues from LJ Mounteney.
