An All-78 Shellac Shack Shuffle

This week on RRR, Roy digs deep in the Triple-R Radio 78 archives for a very eclectic Shellac Shack Shuffle. You’ll hear some vintage Western Swing from Milton Brown & His Musical Brownies. Deep blues from Muddy Waters and his guitar. Raucous pre-rockabilly from the Maddox Brothers & Rose. Stunning gospel from the Staples Singers, lead by eighteen-year-old Mavis Staples. Red-hot rockabilly from Ronnie Self, a tune later covered by k d lang.

As well, Roy remains amazed at finding a classic 1927 old-timey Dock Boggs 78 in a pile of sleeveless junk that came into The Room a while back. How the heck did this rare disc make its way to North Vancouver from the Southern US? Roy gives that one a spin, to see what the excitement is all about.

The fun begins this Sunday, Oct 16th, at 2 PM, MST, on CKUA. Dial in for a good old Shellac Shack Shuffle on Rooooy’s Record Room, sixteen years and counting.
