This week, Roy’s digging deep into the Triple-R Radio archives for a splendid batch of 45s from the early days of RRR. You’ll hear vintage singles from Arthur Alexander, Big Danny Oliver, Howlin’ Wolf, Dale Hawkins, Bettye Swann, Etta Jones, Buddy & Ella Johnson, Ronnie Hawkins, and more
A highlight is a 1962 Epic disc from Dr. Feelgood & the Interns. The group’s original recording of “Mr. Moonlight” inspired one of John Lennon’s most emotionally charged vocal performances when the Beatles covered the tune in 1965
The spin begins Sunday, 2 PM, Mountain on CKUA. Tune in for some 45s from the archives on Roooy’s Record Room, the program that revolves and reveals.
Thanks to everyone who joined the CKUA community by donating to the Fall Fundraiser. You’ll hear a few donor requests on next week’s RRR.
