Building a Baltimore playlist

What do Cab Calloway, The Orioles, Ravyns, Kix, Mullyman and DJ Technics have in common?
OK, doo-woppers The Orioles gave it away, didn't they?
ROUTE 1 travels to BALTIMORE next week, so we're putting together a playlist of music associated with "Charm City," ranging from the big band sounds of Calloway, through doo wop, rock, hip hop and the "Baltimore Club" dance scene.
"Raised on the Radio" is here. So is "Mission Accomplished" by Minlus and McCracken.

It's a crazy mix, but heard chronologically, it does trace the musical heritage of Bawlmer, which is exactly what I required.
