============================================== MATT THE CAT AND THE JUKE IN THE BACK SHOW WITH A TRIBUTE TO FATS DOMINO Pt. 1 ON SHOW #4555
Fats Domino Pt. 1 (1950-53)
The "Juke In The Back" is proud to feature Fats Domino, one of the most influential and popular recording stars of both Rhythm & Blues and Rock n' Roll music. Fats' streak of hit records was nearly unbroken from 1950-1963 and he did it without changing his core sound. He just kept on playin' the New Orleans boogie woogie music that he grew up with. Antoine "Fats" Domino Jr. got his first recording contract in early December of 1949 as bandleader Dave Bartholomew introduced him to Lew Chudd, the head of LA's Imperial Records. Within days, they were in Cosimo Matassa's famous J&M studios cutting Fats' first record, "The Fat Man," which sold over one million copies and made him a star. In part one of this two part series, Matt The Cat will spin the A and B sides of EVERY Fats Domino R&B charting single from 1950 to 1953. Part 2 will pick it up and spin the charting singles up through Domino's big Pop crossover success with "Ain't It A Shame" in 1955. We're diggin' on the R&B roots of Fats Domino, this week on the "Juke In The Back."
1. Swanee River Boogie - Albert Ammons - Mercury 1947 2. The Fat Man - Fats Domino - Imperial 1950 3. Detroit City Blues - Fats Domino - Imperial 1950 4. Every Night About This Time - Fats Domino - Imperial 1950 5. Korea Blues - Fats Domino - Imperial 1950 6. Careless Love - Fats Domino - Imperial 1951 7. Rockin' Chair - Fats Domino - Imperial 1951 8.

ROCK-IT RADIO LAUNCHING PAD WILL REMAIN OPEN DURING
MOVE TO SUPPORT ROCK-IT RADIO.
As we are dismantling Studio A here in Ventura, California
to our new location in Post Falls, Idaho. The Entire month
of May the Rock-it Radio Launching Pad will remain open as
we are keeping all the masters here until we move up there.
So, during the entire month of May we will still be able to
fill your orders of vintage radio broadcasts we offer at:
Archived Rock-it Radio shows are not available any longer until
we move up North on June 2nd. As they are being shipped this
weekend along with Rock-it Radio T Shirts. We will be offering
them of course as soon as we unpack and ready to provide shows
Our regular programming and shows will resume on June 1st.
In the mean time we are busy dismantling and finding all sorts
of lost treasures on the move up.
PROPOSED BROADCAST SCHEDULE FOR ROCK-IT RADIO
DURING MOVE TO IDAHO.
The move date is drawing nearer to the relocation to Idaho
for Rock-it Radio. We are excited for a new chapter for the
Rock-it and have plans for a wonderful new studio.
Our last broadcasts from Ventura, California will probably be
around the 25th of May. During that time we will be trying to
put on as many shows as possible. After that date we will not
have a newsletter out or any new shows uploaded until a temporary
studio is constructed in Idaho, probably on or before June 10th
if all goes well. We will also be unable to fill orders from the
Rock-it Radio store after the 25th until the 10th of June. Hopefully!
sooner though. And your orders will be filled!
Any questions we will still be available via I phone and our e mail

============================================ 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.
