An All-78 Shellac Shack Shuffle

Roy digs deep into the Triple-R Radio archives this week for an all-78 Shellac Shack Shuffle. Highlights include an original 1953 Peacock 78 of Willie Mae “Big Mama” Thornton’s “Hound Dog”, a record that started a revolution. Lots of doo-wop from the Medallions, the Flairs and the Midnighters. Brooding blues from Percy Mayfield. Deep cutting country from Marty Robbins and a searing duet from George Jones & Jeanette Hicks. Roy Hamilton’s original recording of a tune later covered by both Elvis and the Beatles.

And that ain’t All. You’ll also hear some platters that shatter from Sarah Vaughan, Jimmie Rodgers, Lefty Frizzell, Huey ‘Piano’ Smith & The Clowns, Roscoe Gordon and much more.

The spin begins this Sunday, May 19th, 2 PM, Mountain, on donor supported CKUA Radio. Tune in for a good old Shellac Shack Shuffle on Rooooy’s Record Room, the show that, thanks to you CKUA donors, continues to revolve.
