Join us for another installment of “hits that missed,” as we count our way down through some of the biggest recordings of the 1940s. We’ll hear music from Roy Milton, Charles Brown, Ivory Joe Hunter, and Louis Jordan, plus many other R&B classics that never quite made it to number one.

Pictured: During the 1940s, Louis Jordan was king of the charts, racking up a string of almost 40 consecutive top ten R&B hits between 1942 and 1948.

There's an old saying, when it comes to baseball anyway, that nobody remembers who comes in second. On this episode of Blues Unlimited, join us, then, as we pay tribute to a remarkable collection of records that all have one thing in common — they were all within reach of the number one position on the Billboard R&B charts, but never quite made it to the very top. With music from Big Joe Turner, Tiny Bradshaw, Fats Domino, Smiley Lewis, Little Walter, and more, we'll count our way down through some of the biggest "hits that missed" of the early 1950s.

Illustration of Smiley Lewis by William Stout. His recording of “I Hear You Knocking” was one of the biggest number two hits of the early 1950s.

PLEASE HELP SHARE THE LOVE! Your support means the world to us: http://tinyurl.com/gter36s

Note to our listeners: The day we're posting this, March 21st, would have been Son House's 115th birthday. We hope you enjoy this special edition of Blues Unlimited, in his honor.

Joinus as two legendary musicians share their richly compelling narratives, and speak openly and candidly about their lives in the blues. Lightnin' Hopkins talks to author and scholar Sam Charters, during a 1964 interview, about hard times growing up in Texas and some of his early influences, while Son House speaks to Studs Terkel, in an informal chat session from 1965, about being a preacher on the one hand, and a blues singer on the other. It’s Lightnin’ Hopkins and Son House, in story and song, on this episode of Blues Unlimited.
