This week, on Triple-R Radio, Roy checks out a fresh stack of 45s that recently showed up in The Room. You’ll hear the obscure and the familiar from the likes of Doris Troy, Joe Barry, the Flamingos, the Fiestas, Alvin Cash & the Crawlers, the Impressions, the Marvelettes, and so many more.
Here’s a FUN highlight. Before the official British Invasion led by the Beatles in 1964, two of the top English rock ‘n’ roll imports to Canada were Cliff Richard and the Shadows. Cliff and the Shadows were all over the radio, together and separately. Well, actually, most of the early Cliff Richard 45s featured the Shadows as his backing band. Like “Dancing Shoes”, from 1963.
The spin begins this Sunday, January 29th, at 2 PM on CKUA. Tune in for a Fingerfulla 45s on Roooy’s Record Room, the show that continues to revolve.
This episode of RRR will be available ‘on demand’ for seven days after the first broadcast – ondemand.ckua.com
