Songs of Summer from theJOLESgroup on 8tracks Radio.

Summers Here! This is by far one of our favorite playlists. We’ve been listening to it daily if that is any indication. Starting with music from 1934 and taking you through to the early 2000’s. It’s nostalgia and pure fun all rolled into one celebration of Summer.
