Yep, loads of uncovered treasures on the upcoming ‘78s from the crates’ episode of Triple-R Radio. Like the very first Canadian bluegrass record (1957). A rockabilly George Hamilton IV B-side sporting a ‘Don’t air’ sticker on the label. A lively early 50s country number from Jazz guitarist Lenny Breau’s parents.
And that’s just a sneak peek. You’ll also hear superb sides from Joe Williams (pre-Count Basie jump-blues), early Ella Fitzgerald with Teddy Wilson, the Original Gospel Harmonettes, Gene Summers & His Rebels, the Chocolate Dandies, and more.
This eclectic musical romp airs this Sunday, August 14th, 1 PM, Mountain, on CKUA. Dial in to check out some 78 rpm gems on Roooy’s Record Room, the show that likes to spin a few. Ever revolving for sixteen years and counting.
