This Week: a Fifteenth Birthday Bash

On April 10, 2006, a brand-new show hit the CKUA airwaves. Fifteen years and a day later, RRR host, Roy Forbes, celebrates a decade-and-a-half of Triple-R Radio with esteemed CKUA announcer Grant Stovel along for the ride.

Grant and Roy talk about Roy’s lifelong passion for vinyl and shellac, spinning sides about buttercups, psychotic reactions, Tennessee hustlers, electrocution, love drops and more.

You’ll hear a few of Roy’s record collecting stories, from a sock hop at Frank Ross Junior Secondary high school in Dawson Creek, BC, to a cluttered, unheated back room of a Peace River, AB, junk shop. The playlist is jam-packed with treasures from Count Five, the Birmingham Jubilee Singers, the Fort Worth Doughboys, the Esquires, Wanda Jackson, Jimmie Rodgers (with Louis & Lil Armstrong), Barry Allen, and more.

Join the festivities on Sunday, April 11, 1pm Mountain, as Grant Stovel and Roy Forbes celebrate fifteen years of Rooooy’s Record Room, the show that continues to revolve, and revolve, and revolve.
