You’ll hear another eclectic batch of 78s from the crates this Sunday on Roy’s Record Room. Roy will treat your ears to some Western Swing from Milton Brown & His Brownies. Jump blues from Tiny Bradshaw. Blood-harmony country from the Louvin Brothers. Skiffle from Chas McDevitt’s Skiffle Band. Vintage jug-band jazz from the Washboard Rhythm Boys. Early Canadian C&W from Hank ‘The Yodeling Ranger’ aka Hank Snow.
And that ain’t all. In honour of John Worthington, CKUA’s Old-Disc jockey, Roy has dug up a red-hot 1939 big band side from Artie Shaw & his Orchestra. Artie and the band blow the doors off the joint on this number. Especially the drummer. Get ready for “Traffic Jam”.
The spin begins this Sunday, March 19th, 2 PM, Mountain, on CKUA. Dial in for more 78s from the crates on Roooy’s Record Room. Always revolving. Always revealing.
And folks … The second weekend in April marks seventeen years of RRR. With this in mind, I’ll be celebrating YOU, the Triple-R radio listeners, on the April 9th show, by spinning an hour of Listener highlights. If you want to get in on the fun, tap out firstname.lastname@example.org. Let me know where you’re writing from and what tune you’ve heard on RRR that you’d like to hear again. You can also use the ‘Open Mic’ feature on the CKUA app to leave an audio message.
