We’re inviting you to tune into a special two-hour fundraising edition of Roy’s Record Room, Sunday, October 29th, from 12 to 2 pm MST. Lark Clark joins Triple-R Radio host Roy Forbes who will be weaving his usual RRR magic with his 78s and 45s, all the while, inviting you to donate to the CKUA Fall Fundraiser.
Once again, Roy has gone through his extensive collection of 45 rpm singles and has selected twelve little platters to make up an essential Fingerfulla 45s Prize Pack which will be taken home by some lucky person who gets in touch during the two-hour extravaganza. Here are some highlights from this excellent twelve-pack of singles.
The Beatles A Hard Day’s Night/I Should Have Known Better A 1964 two-sided stunner by the Fab Four. From the startling opening jangle of “A Hard Day’s Night” to the closing harmonica riff of “I Should Have Known Better”, you’ll play this one over and over and over again.
Little Sister/His Latest Flame
Two of the King’s best early 60s sides, especially the rockin’ “Little Sister”, which features that iconic “Susie Q” guitar riff.
Bobby Fuller Four I Fought The Law A timeless garage-band masterpiece from 1966. The spirit of Buddy Holly & the Crickets lives on in this great tune. The Clash covered it too.
Manfred Mann Do Wah Diddy Diddy Here’s a classic British Invasion platter from 1964, featuring a soulful, bluesy vocal from singer Paul Jones.
It doesn’t end there, Roy has included 7 more desirable 45s in this prize pack from the likes of the Dave Clark 5, Fats Domino, the Hollywood Flames, Jack Scott, the Jaynettes, Jerry Lee Lewis and the Johnny Otis Show – All killer, no filler!
Sanford Clark The Fool Samnford gives out a brooding vocal on this mid-tempo 1956 rockabilly classic, punctuated by an insistent , slashing electric guitar riff from Al Casey. There is a tiny heat mark on this rare one which only affects a few opening grooves. A little reminder that you’re listening to a record.
Roy and Lark look forward to hearing from you on the 29th.
