Jet Magazine (11/8/51) HIT SONG OF THE WEEK

Title: Bad, Bad Whiskey! It dramatizes in song what can happen to inveterate whiskey drinkers, was used on sound wagon making rounds of Atlanta's Peoplestown housing project to warn Negroes not to drink unlicensed booze. Effect: one night last week police arrested only one man for drunkenness where usual haul was average 100.
