Let’s face it, Roy Forbes just loves those big old shellac platters. So, this week, he digs out another stack of crate 78s to spin on Roy’s Record Room. You’ll hear moments of musical magnificence from the likes of the Delmore Brothers, Etta Jones, Red Murrell & His Ozark Playboys, the Drifters, Tennessee Ernie, Dinah Washington, and more.
Looking a week ahead, Roy will be marking seventeen years of Roy’s Record Room on the April 9th edition of the show. He’s planning to celebrate you – RRR/CKUA listeners. If you’ve heard a tune on Triple-R Radio that you need to hear again, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or use the Open Mice feature on the CKUA app to send an audio message. Roy just might give your RRR fave a spin. To get you in a 17th birthday party mood, Roy plays Ella Mae Morse on this Sunday’s program. “Seventeen”.
The spin begins this Sunday, April 2nd, 2 PM, Mountain, on CKUA. Dial in for more 78s from the crates on Roooy’s Record Room. Rocking and revolving.
