History of Black American Music

As part of Black History Month Craig tells the story of Black American Music from 1945 to today in just 3 hours - is he mad? Can he do it? Who know's, but expect some amazing tunes and tales as he delves into his trunk of funk to come up with a playlist to end all playlists. He'll be assisted by a band of specially selected musicians who will be adding some live music to our history lesson. How many tunes can we play in 3 hours, which tunes will make the cut?
