This week on 12th Street Jump we celebrate the birthday of Louis Jordan with our special guest Bryan Redmond.

Louis Jordan

Louis Thomas Jordan (July 8, 1908 – February 4, 1975[1]) was a pioneering American jazzblues and rhythm & blues musiciansongwriter and bandleader who enjoyed his greatest popularity from the late 1930s to the early 1950s. Known as "The King of the Jukebox", Jordan was highly popular with both black and white audiences in the later years of the swing era. In 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him #59 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.-Wikipedia

On the funny side, Dr. Pearl prescribes some straight advice for crooked politics and later the Sax Therapist helps a couple from Omaha find their big O.
