LANE QUIGLEY AND THE MEMORY LANE SHOW ON ROCK-IT RADIO SHOW #4630 - Top 25's THAT WE'RE ONE HIT WONDERS Pt. 3 It's always been difficult to get one hit record. But for some artists, it was harder to get a SECOND hit record. For every Elvis or Fats or Drifters, there were dozens of performers who had fleeting success but were not able to sustain a career. This week's Memory Lane Show begins a mini-series of programs entitled "Fabulous Forgotten Top 40's - One Hit Wonder Edition." In this series, host Lane Quigley will feature artists who had their day in the spotlight with a Top 40 hit on the U.S. charts --- but never again were able to crack the U.S. Hot 100. Get ready to jog your memory with these 25 lost hits:
We don't have a playlist for this show yet, but we will add it in next week's newsletter.
Thank you Lane for another great Flashback to Top 40 Radio! If you have any requests or comments or would just like to give Lane a friendly hello! You can reach him at: firstname.lastname@example.org

============================================== MATT THE CAT AND THE JUKE IN THE BACK SHOW WITH A TRIBUTE SHOW TO RUTH BROWN #3 IN ROCK-IT SHOW #4634
Ruth Brown Pt. 3 (1953-55)
Ruth Brown was Atlantic Records first big star. She was so successful, racking up 24 R&B hits for the fledging label, that Atlantic was often called the "house that Ruth built." This week, "Juke In The Back" continues its 3 part feature celebrating the music and influence of "Miss Rhythm." Part 3 will feature another hour of Brown's gritty, tough R&B and sweet ballads beginning in the middle of 1953 and continuing up through her first single release of 1955. During this period, she would score 2 more #1 hits with "Oh What A Dream," which was written for her by Chuck Willis and "Mambo Baby." These Ruth Brown sessions were co-produced by Jerry Wexler, who had joined Atlantic Records in '53 as Atlantic's co-founder Herb Abramson was drafted into the Army. Rock n' roll was about to hit the mainstream as we close this final part of our Ruth Brown complete singles chronology. Next week, our look at Ruth Brown continues as we introduce a bonus show that will feature every one of her remaining charting singles from 1955-1960.
1. Swanee River Boogie - Albert Ammons - Mercury 1947 2. The Shrine Of St. Cecilia - Ruth Brown - Unissued 1951 3. Wild Wild Young Men - Ruth Brown - Atlantic 1953 4.
