Fourth of July Radio Edition

Fourth of July, is the day commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring our independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Today, Americans celebrate by having picnics, barbecues, parades, fireworks and of course, music.

The first song is "This Land is Your Land" by Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings out of Brooklyn, New York. This band has become an Austin, Texas favorite and when you listen to the song, they'll become your favorite as well. They ooze a soul, mellow blues, funk sound and beat.

Next, the Fourth of July Radio Edition starts out with some songs "to get the party started." Songs by Pitbull, Daddy Yankee, DJ Laz, Nore and other featured guest will put you in the mood for dancing.

Also in the playlist is "96 Tears" by Question Mark and The Mysterians, a 1960's band formed in Saginaw, Michigan. "96 Tears" was the top selling record in America in October 1966. This band has a very interesting history, check it out.

Then the playlist changes to a various mix of songs ending with Los Amigos Invisibles.

Rock y Roll Radio hopes that you have the opportunity to celebrate Fouth of July with friends and family. If you have to work on this holiday, Rock y Roll Radio thanks you for your service and hopes you can celebrate on another day.
