You Led Zeppelin fans will want to tune in on Monday to hear Lead Belly's early recording of "Gallis Pole" from the original 1939 Musicraft 78
No, its not a new e-mail address, it's what's up on Triple-R Radio this week. I've dug out a stack of original blues 78s on revered labels like Duke, Chess, Parrot, Specialty, Checker, DeLuxe, Bluebird, Swing Time, Imperial and more. Tune in as I spin some seriously fine shellac from Little Walter & His Jukes; Muddy Waters; Lil Green; Ray Charles; Percy Mayfield; Charles Brown with Johnny Moore's Three Blazers; Lead Belly; Roy Brown & His Mighty, Mighty Men; Lil Green and more.
So, put a note on the fridge - Monday Sept 1, 6pm Mountain Time. It's Blues at 78 RPM on Roooooy's Record Room, the show that unravels the roots of today's tunes for the pure joy of it.
