What do Little Richard, Larry Williams, Sam Cooke, Guitar Slim and Percy Mayfield have in Common? They all recorded some of their most important work for Specialty Records.
The revered L. A- based r&b, gospel, blues, rock ‘n’ roll label (active from the mid-40s through to the mid-60S) is the focus of this week’s edition of Triple-R Radio. As well as Richard, Larry, Sam, Slim and Percy, you’ll hear exciting sides from Frankie Lee Sims, the Original Gospel Harmonettes, Don & Dewey, the Soul Stirrers, Camille Howard and more.
That’s Sunday at 1pm MT for an informal look at Specialty Records on Roy’s Record Room, the show that reveals the roots.
