Rhythm and Blues are deeply rooted in music from gospel and spiritual traditions. And every year we celebrate that sound on the R&B Jukebox Gospel show.

Enjoy the spiritual side of BB King, Aretha Franklin, and Sam Cooke along with some of gospel music’s greatest artists. It sounds like R&B, but it’s all gospel!
