Summertime Rockin' 78 Dance Party on Roy's Record Room



cp_ritchievalens78_rrr.jpg
We are rockin' the bop this coming Monday night on The Room. All rock and roll 78s, including this iconic (and rare) 1958 Apex 78 from Ritchie Valens.

This week, it's time for the annual Triple-R Radio Summertime Rockin' 78 Dance Party with platters that matter (don't drop 'em, they'll shatter) from Elvis Presley, Little Richard, Ritchie Valens, Wanda Jackson, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Brenda Lee and more, all from the original 78s.

Better roll up that rug and put on your dancin' shoes this coming Monday, six PM, Mountain, for a Summertime Rockin' 78 Dance Party on Roooy's Record Room, the show where we unravel, reveal and dance to the roots of today's tunes, for the pure sweaty joy of it.

A couple of weeks ago, CKUA's Terry David Mulligan ran a splendid interview with Canadian rock-and-roll-radio legend, Red Robinson, on Mulligan Stew. I managed to 'drop an ear' on the show and it was fantastic. So much so that Terry and Red inspired me to put together this Summertime Rockin' 78 Dance Party. Thanks, Terry. Thanks, Red.

Go here to check out a bit of the Terry-Red interview where Red talks about meeting and working with Elvis.

And, hey, I'll be performing at the Edmonton Folk Festival, August 8, 9, and 10th. Go here to see where I'll be over the weekend. Be sure to say hello and let me know how RRR's going for ya.
