It's nearly a year now since a fantastic collection of Western Swing/C&W/Old Timey 78s came to The Room
from Calgary collector, writer and music historian, Keith Titterington. I've dedicated twelve editions of RRR
to this amazing stash of shellac and am just scratching the surface of this deep, deep collection of records.
This week, we'll go through some of my favourites from that batch as heard on RRR
over the past year, with essential sides from Johnnie Lee Wills & His Boys, The Swingbillies, Gid Tanner & Riley Puckett, Wade Ray, The Plainsmen, the Modern Mountaineers and more.
That's Monday, October 22nd - six PM, Mountain Time - all C&W/Western Swing/Old Timey 78s from the Keith Titterington collection
on Rooooy's Record Room
- the show that unravels the roots of today's music, for the pure joy of it.
