============================================== MATT THE CAT AND THE JUKE IN THE BACK SHOW WITH A TRIBUTE TO FATS DOMINO Pt. 1 ON SHOW #4566
Fats Domino Pt. 2 (1953-55)
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 two of this two part series, Matt The Cat will spin the A and B sides of EVERY Fats Domino R&B charting single from mid-1953 thru his enormous crossover success in 1955 with "Ain't It A Shame." That record not only spent 11 weeks on top of the R&B charts, but it also crossed over and hit #10 on the Pop charts. Pat Boone would take his cover version to #1, thus giving Fats Domino even more Pop exposure. This show will also feature some great non-charting records and fabulous instrumentals from this time period as well. So c'mon and dig the R&B roots of Fats Domino, this week on the "Juke In The Back."
1. Swanee River Boogie - Albert Ammons - Mercury 1947 2. Rose Mary - Fats Domino - Imperial 1953 3. You Said You Love Me - Fats Domino - Imperial 1953 4. Something's Wrong - Fats Domino - Imperial 1953 5. Don't Leave Me This Way - Fats Domino - Imperial 1953 6. You Done Me Wrong - Fats Domino - Imperial 1954 7. Little School Girl - Fats Domino - Imperial 1954 8. Thinking Of You - Fats Domino - Imperial 1954 9. I Know - Fats Domino - Imperial 1954 10. Don't You Know - Fats Domino - Imperial 1955 11. Helping Hand (A Long Way From Home) - Fats Domino - Imperial 1955 12. Ain't It A Shame - Fats Domino - Imperial 1955 13. GREAT 78 - Where Did You Stay - Fats Domino - Imperial 1954 14.

ROCK-IT RADIO IDAHO - A WORK IN PROGRESS
We finally arrived in Idaho on June 6th. But for almost another two weeks we were without internet access. Or had begun to unpack our equipment. Our geographic location is we sit in a small valley surrounded by hills. There is no cable service and we were attempting to contact Dish Satellite Network for internet and TV here. It took nearly a week for a technician to come out to tell us that the line of site to the satellite dish was blocked and would have to sit about 300 yards from the house. Due to the position of their satellite. We were told of a local provider that offers point to point microwave communications that could provide internet. Through a microwave hookup on our property. We contacted them and was able to get a signal up to there mountain top site. But it took another week to get a technician to hook it up. And for TV we were able to link up with Directv whose satellite sets a little more to the west so we could beam in there.
Our studio is still a work in progress. We have finally had internet access to fill orders just a couple of days ago. Dozens of boxes are lining our basement here and I know the archived shows are in there somewhere. Within a couple of days we plan on sorting out and building up the studio once again.

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