============================================== MATT THE CAT AND THE JUKE IN THE BACK SHOW ON ROCK-IT RADIO SHOW #4811 - SPOTLIGHT ON FAYE ADAMS
This week's "Juke In The Back" highlights the short, but important career of Faye Adams. DJ Alan Freed called her "The little gal with the big voice" and she scored an impressive 3 #1 R&B hits in just a little over a year (1953-54). Surprisingly, she only had one more hit, before leaving secular music for her first love, Gospel Music. Born Fanny Tuell, Adams got her stage name from bandleader Joe Morris, who hired her after his former female vocalist, Laurie Tate, left to raise a family. Morris' record label, Atlantic Records was not terribly impressed with the 2 released singles featuring Adams on lead, so they declined to release the new Morris composition, "Shake A Hand." Morris took Adams over to New York's Herald Records and right out of the gate, "Shake A Hand" topped the charts for a whopping 10 weeks. Two more #1s followed ("I'll Be True" and "Hurts Me To My Heart"), before the hits began to fade. Adams had one more hit single in 1957 for Imperial. By the early '60s, she had left secular music all together and hasn't been heard from since. Faye Adams' Herald and Imperial Records output is impressive and is featured throughout this week's "Juke In The Back" with Matt The Cat.

============================================== AL COOL DADDY SMITH WITH A LOSS ROCKER TRIBUTE TO JIMMY PRESTON IN SHOW #4813 ON ROCK-IT RADIO.
This show is a tribute to another unheralded and virtually unknown
pioneer of Rock and Roll, Jimmy Preston and His Prestonians.
Jimmy's career lasted less than four years (1948-1952) and two
record labels but in that short time he had three hits on the R&B
charts including arguably the first Rock and Roll Record -- Rock
this Joint. This song was later covered by
Bill Haley and became for him what arguably could be called the
first Rockabilly record ever recorded. Some have said that Bill's
version of "Rock the Joint is the first Rock & Roll Record
recorded. Both Jimmy's and Bill's versions are given this status
in Jim Dawson and Steve Propes' book. 'What Was The First Rock
and Roll Record?
The recordings that are played on this show will cover his work
on both the Gotham and Derby labels.
The play list is as follows:
