2022 was another year of discovery on Triple-R Radio’s ‘78s from the crates’ series. This New Years Day, Roy spins some of the shellac that stood out. You’ll hear Western Swing from Spade Cooley. Hot string band Hillbilly from the Plainsmen. Jive vocals from the Royal Rhythm Boys. Fiery string-band jazz from Joe Venuti & Eddie Lang. Clean blues fingerpicking from Blind Blake. Acapella Gospel from the Birmingham Jubilee Singers. Rockin’ jump-blues from Annisteen Allen. And that’s just scratching the surface.
The first spin of 2023 begins this Sunday, January 1st, 2 PM, Mountain, on CKUA. Dial in for some 2022 ‘78s from the crates’ highlights on Rooooy’s Record Room, the show that resolves to revolve and reveal.
Happy New Year everyone! Here’s to more shellac and vinyl in 2023 on Triple-R Radio aka RRR aka The Room aka Roy’s Record Room.
