Lots of Western Swing records on RRR this coming Monday, including this classic WS 1934 Bluebird from Milton Brown
In the fall on 2011, two pallets of 78s (around 6000 pounds - 8000 78s) came to Triple-R Radio from Calgary collector, Keith Titterington. Keith had spent fifty-plus years putting together this extensive collection of western swing, old timey and country 78s. We've been going through the records on RRR since late 2011. This will be show #29 in our informal and ongoing look at this colossal batch of shellac and we're still just getting started. Keith passed away in 2013 - we keep his records spinning here on The Room.
This week, we'll hear essential sides from Milton Brown & His Musical Brownies, Cliff Bruner & His Boys, Jimmie Rodgers (the Blue Yodeler), Gid Tanner & His Skillet Lickers; Faron Young; Riley Puckett, the Drifting Cowboys, Lefty Frizzell and more.
So turn off that TV and turn your radio up on Monday Sept 15th - 6pm Mountain - as we take another look at the Titterington 78s - all country and western swing - on Rooooy's Record Room, the show that unravels and reveals the roots of today's tunes, for the pure joy of it.
