It’ll be nothing but thrills, chills and spills this Sunday afternoon when Triple-R Radio host Roy Forbes hits the CKUA airwaves with World Spinning host Lark Clark for two hours of shellac and vinyl on Roy’s Record Room.
The first all-78 rpm hour will feature RRR fundraising favourites from Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Roy Montrell, Smiley Lewis, Maddox Brothers & Rose, Etta James, Big Maybelle, the Dominos with Clyde McPhatter, Tennessee Ernie & Ella Mae Morse, Anisteen Allen, and more.
In the second hour, the turntable slows down to 45 rpm, but the music doesn’t let up, with sides from the Knickerbockers, Dusty Springfield, the Equals, Little Richard, Nina Simone, the Joe Cuba Sextet, Lonnie Mack, Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin and more.
Tune in on Sunday, May 2, 1 to 3 PM, Mountain, as Roy and Lark play some of RRR’s biggest hits from the archives, all the while encouraging you to donate to make this Spring Fundraiser another one for the history books.
It’s a million-dollar bash on CKUA and Roy’s Record Room. Join the crew and get in on the truly exciting last Sunday of the fundraiser.
