A History of The Chitlin’ Circuit w/Preston Lauterbach

Preston Lauterbach, music journalist and author of Beale Street Dynasty, is also the author of The Chitlin Circuit: And the Road to Rock ‘n” Roll, where he explores the origins of rock-and-roll in Black culture, specifically Black/Delta blues culture. Cooki B and Tonya talk to him about his book, the artists and songs that served as a springboard for rock music and of course Robert Johnson. Often classified as second tier, the Chitlin Circuit birthed and nurtured some of our country’s most renowned musicians and singers whether directly or indirectly!
