Now Playing at the Shady Dell --- May 1966

A new month means a new batch of records in the Dell jukebox. It's May 1966, arguably the greatest month in Dell history for those of us who love soul music.

Many of the older favorites are still going strong and week by week some of the best new soul sounds of the 60s are joining the lineup.

Experience the look and sound of young America!
