MATT THE CAT & THE JUKE IN THE BACK WITH A FEATURE ON THE PENGUINS INCLUDING INTERVIEW WITH CLEVE DUNCAN IN ROCK-IT RADIO #4383
The Penguins' "Earth Angel" was the first rhythm & blues song to crossover into the pop world in such a big way that it announced the beginning of what was to be called "rock n' roll." "Earth Angel" remains one of the most enduring songs in the history of recorded music and yet when it was released in late 1954, it received very little promotion from the record company. It's a rare example of a song that became a huge hit based on its own merits. The Penguins' lead vocalist, Cleve Duncan, who passed away on November 6, 2012 while waiting in line to vote, talks with Matt The Cat about The Penguins' beginnings, "Earth Angel" and the 1950s music scene. Cleve Duncan tells the Penguins' story in his own words, while Matt The Cat digs deep into the archives to pull out some surprises, like both of the Penguins' live performances from a 1956 Alan Freed show. Grab a few nickels, as we pay tribute to one of LA's great vocal groups while the juke jumps with the best of The Penguins.

============================================= DAVE BRUBECK JAZZ GREAT PASSES AWAY AT 91
Last Wednesday on December 5th we received a e mail from Studio C with Al Smith that Dave Brubeck passed away that morning at the age of 91.
A giant in jazz has died today, Dave Brubeck.
He was as much a part of the 50's and 60's as the music we play on Rock-it.
In fact, the cool kids in my high school would claim their knowledge of his music whether that was true or not and this during a time when Rock and Roll was at its height!!
Paul Desmond who was in his quartet played Alto Sax and was simply ethereal.

============================================ Rock-it Radio Program Webpage Reminder
Remember, if the show
that you want to hear is getting close to the bottom of the list of
radio shows, you should tune in as soon as you can. These shows to have a
high audio quality require a lot of internet bandwidth and memory. And
currently we can only afford the 25 latest shows online here at Rock-it
Radio. So, when a new show is put online it knocks the oldest one off
the Rock-it Radio archives page. Usually a show will at least last 16
to 20 days, once it is placed in the archives.
