Roy digs deep into the RRR archives this week on Roy’s Record Room, spinning an eclectic stack of platters from folks like Mendelson Joe with Mainline, Irma Thomas, George Jones, the Byrds, Porter Wagoner, Dionne Warwick, the Shirelles, and so many more.
A rollicking highlight is a 1962 Ace 45 from Huey ‘Piano’ Smith & the Clowns. We lost the revered New Orleans piano player a while back. It’s good to have his records spinning on the Triple-R turntable to remind us how much joy there is in life and in music. Get ready to do a little dance with Huey ‘Piano’ Smith & the Clowns – “Popeye”.
The spin begins this coming Sunday, February 26th,, 2 PM, Mountain, on donor supported CKUA Radio. Drop in for a lively batch of 45s from the archives on Rooooy’s Record Room. Always revolving. Always revealing.
