Today's show's all set to go. Technical news: it'll be on the i-player for 30 days from tonight. As of 6 this morning, all BBC radio programmes will stay on Listen Again for 30 days rather than the week that we've had up until now. It's a great thing, the BBC's iplayer, and I know so many of you use it for RNRH, so thank you. Tonight we'll start with Ronnie Hawkins and Chuck Berry, then go into Elvis, Johnny Burnette, Robin Luke, Ricky Nelson, Sleepy LaBeef, Cliff, The Shadows, Wynonie, Joe Brown and Carl Perkins. Locally we've more cuts from the new cd's from Jack Rabbit Slim & Rusti Steel & The Star Tones, Jackson Sloan & Big Black Cadillac, more from Jerry Lee's new album and we remember Clyde Mcphatter and Ruth Brown on their respective anniversaries. Have a nice afternoon and I'll see you "live" at 6. Bxx

Today's Rant: The Beatles, The question that no panel of talking heads are asking is why? Up to that point in pop music history English acts had very little, if any success, in America. At the same time, American acts such as R&B legends as Robert Johnson, Howlin Wolf, and Muddy Waters were being worshipped by the likes of Lennon, McCartney, Jagger and Clapton. So why would these lads from Liverpool take the world by storm and particularly American teenagers like me? The short answer is "Rockabilly" music. Almost all early rockers were from the Southern United States, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison were from Texas, so other than the acts out of Philly and the East Coast, the founders of early Rock n roll such as Elvis, Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis were very much from the south, and most from the deep south. You can add Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash to that list. The "hillbilly" influence in early rock was very hard to listen to, if you were from Chicago or Detroit, it just sounded stupid an ...
TRAIN SONGS AND DESPITE IT ALL BLUES : I was born in March of 1961 and the events that came from this day 50 years ago I honestly remember to be my first memories. I know I've spent a lifetime processing the events that happened in the sixties and I don't relate to much of how it has been presented. Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Fats Domino, Little Richard that rock and roll sound that came out of Sun Studio ... yeah I relate to that. The stories of the early rock and blues tunes are like fables to me. One of my favorites is Poor Jenny by the Everly Brothers which was written by Felice and Boudleaux Bryant. I took my little Jenny to a party last night At ten o'clock it ended in a heck of a fight When someone hit my Jenny she went out like a light Poor Jenny And then some joker went and called the cops on the phone And everybody scattered out to places unknown I couldn't carry Jenny so I left her alone Poor Jenny Well it seems a shame that Jenny had to go get apprehended A heck of a fate The party was the ...

The magazine wouldn't resolve all its pop charts into one until 1959. * Hill Valley, CA native Marty Mcfly travels back to this date from 1985 to make sure his parents get together; while in 1955, he plays "Johnny B. Goode" at a local sock hop, inspiring Chuck Berry's "new sound." (Not really). * Les Paul and Mary Ford hit with "Magic Melody". 1957: The rock and roll movie Jamboree premieres in Hollywood, featuring performances from Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino, Carl Perkins, Frankie Avalon, Connie Francis, Buddy Knox, and Slim Whitman. Perkins rejects a song called "Great Balls of Fire" that Jerry Lee has already recorded, and Lewis' version, released along with the film, becomes a hit. Perkins instead opts to sing a song called "Glad All Over" in the film, which goes ...

ROCKY MTN. PBS PRESENTS AMERICAN MASTERS: Sister Rosetta Tharpe: THE GODMOTHER OF ROCK & ROLL . When: Friday, February 22nd Time: 9:00 p.m. Where: On your local RM PBS Channel (Channel 6 in Denver) . During the 1940s, 50s and 60s, Southern-born, Chicago-raised and New York-made Sister Rosetta Tharpe introduced the spiritual passion of her gospel music into the secular world of popular rock 'n roll, inspiring the male icons of the genre. This flamboyant African-American gospel superstar, with her spectacular virtuosity on the newly electrified guitar, was a natural-born performer and a rebel – one of the most important singer-musicians of the 20th century. She is acknowledged as a major influence not only on generations of black musicians – including Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Isaac Hayes and Etta James – but also on white stars such as Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash. . Presented in High Definition | Anamorphic Widescreen .

The 1950s - The Beginnings of Rock 'n Roll The 1950s were a decade full of changes. World War II was over, and soldiers returned home and started families, beginning the baby boom. People could afford goods not available during wartime, including homes, and the increase in affordable, single-family homes created suburbia. Segregation was still a reality, but it was beginning to change and integration was becoming a more accepted idea. Televisions were becoming the center of American living rooms, and so began the television's influence on popular culture. Rock 'n Roll In this time of change, a new form of music was gaining popularity within the youth culture of the 50s. Rock 'n Roll, which was born out of a mixing of blues, gospel, and country, was breaking the conservative mold of the time. Rockers like Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Bill Haley, and Buddy Holly became stars and laid the foundation for much of the music we listen to today. * Iskra

*** On the album "Hendrix in the West", Jimi Hendrix does excellent covers of the Beatles "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" but he does an awesome cover of Chuck Berry's classic, "Johnny B. Goode". Hendrix closes out the set by playing a great cover of Carl Perkins' "Blue Suede Shoes". Man, Jimi Hendrix is a rock God. Plain and simple.

...I listen to is played by Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins you know. The classics!
I was watching Chuck Berry on T.V. tonight. Also on the show were Keith Richards, the lead guitar of the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Little Richard, Carl Perkins, etc. Now Chuck was talking about how his songs were often covered by white singers and he was critical of their performances. Little Richard was particularly critical of the way Pat Boone covered songs like Tutti Frutti and Long Tall Sally. He felt that Pat and other white singers sanitized the songs, which made the songs more acceptable to the parents of the white kids. Now the exception to sanitizing the music and making it more gentle were groups like the Beatles and Rolling Stones, who covered Little Richard’s and Chuck’s stuff and played it just as raw and good as they did. Now the white kids would go out and buy the rough and rock on versions of the music of these black artist as well as the sanitized versions of the white artist and when they got home they would hide the records of the black artist from their parents and played th ...

Caldonia! Maybe he did, but he had some help from Little Richard, Ike Turner, Chuck Berry and Carl Perkins.
