The Ray-O-Vacs perform a doo-wop version of "Take Me Back To My Boots And Saddle" on Monday's RRR. Tune in to hear this fine, fine 78.
This week, it's back to the 78s for a good old Shellac Shack Shuffle on Triple-R Radio - all 78s, all over the musical map. with essential sides from the Ray-O-Vacs, Annette Hanshaw, Percy Mayfield, Bert Williams, The Lion, Trio Del Norte, Jules Allen 'The Singing Cowboy', the Almanac Singers and more.
That's Monday, April 21st - 6pm Mountain time - for a Shellac Shack Shuffle, all 78s, all over the musical map on Roy's Record Room - the show that unravels and reveals the roots of today's tunes, for the pure, uninhibited joy of it.
And don't forget, Lark Clark and I will join forces for a two-hour shellac and vinyl extravaganza aka the Spring Fundraising edition of Roy's Record Room, LIVE from the CKUA Performance Space on Monday, April 28th. There are rumours of a tour of the CKUA record library at some point in the evening. I'm currently digging through my 45s to find the perfect Fingerfulla 45s giveaway pack for the event. Come on down, give a little holler, ring those phones, raise a few dollars! Be there or be L7.
Also, the springtime Edmonton Music Collectors Show is happening on Sunday, April 27th. Go here for more info on this essential vinyl lover's event.
