============================================== MATT THE CAT AND THE JUKE IN THE BACK SHOW WITH A Pt. 1 OF A TRIBUTE TO THE CLOVERS! ON SHOW #4491
The Clovers Pt. 1 (1950-53)
The Clovers were the most successful rhythm & blues vocal group from 1951 to 1955, racking up 16 top 10 R&B singles during that time-frame. There of those singles went to #1. Though they didn't have a huge career defining hit, like The Dominoes did with "Sixty Minute Man," The Clovers claim to fame was consistency. You always knew what you were going to get with a Clovers record. Most of their songs were mid-tempo with tight, limited instrumentation, beautifully blended harmonies and catchy, memorable lyrics. Atlantic Records co-founder Ahmet Ertegun oversaw their quality control, writing every one of their #1 records. This week, "Juke In The Back" begins a 3 show feature on this ground-breaking pre-rock n' roll group. In part 1, we'll cover EVERY Clovers' release (both A and B sides) from their debut on Rainbow Records in 1950 to their mid-1953 Atlantic releases. In-between, you'll find almost #1s, "One Mint Julep" and "Crawlin' as well as their monster hits, "Don't You Know I love You So," "Fool, Fool, Fool" and "Ting-A-Ling." We even get the inside scoop on how the Clovers were signed to Atlantic from an interview Matt The Cat conducted with the late Ahmet Ertegun several years ago. It's part 1 of 3 on the amazing Clovers, this week on the "Juke In The Back."
1. Swanee River Boogie - Albert Ammons - Mercury 1947 2. Yes Sir, That's My Baby - The Clovers - Rainbow 1950 3. When You Come Back To Me - The Clovers - Rainbow 1950 4.

============================================ 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.
============================================ Come Join the Rock-it Listener's Club

Listeners Club?? And be notified when new shows are playing on the
