============================================== MATT THE CAT AND THE JUKE IN THE BACK SHOW ON ROCK-IT RADIO SHOW #4825 - SPOTLIGHT ON JUKEBOX 1954
1954: Jukebox Rhythm Review, Pt. 1
1954 was a pivotal year for American Music. The lines between Rhythm & Blues and Pop were getting blurred as more and more R&B records crossed over into the Pop Chart, causing a brand new "youth market" to open up. American teens of all colors were diggin' that jump blues sound that had been a staple on Black Radio for years. This would lead to racial integration and eventually, the Civil Rights Movement. There is no doubt that music played an important role in the early days of Civil Rights and those roots can be traced back to the Black Music of 1954. In fact, this was the year that a young, white kid from Memphis named Elvis began recording at 706 Union Avenue. It was also a year of unlikely musical heroes as 43 year old Joe Turner, who had been making records since 1938, topped the R&B Chart twice, helping to propel Rock n' Roll Music to the forefront. Vocal groups like The Crows, The Spiders, The Spaniels and The Drifters were forging a new sub-genre that would come to be called Doo Wop. This week in part 1, Matt The Cat focuses on the biggest jukebox hits of the first half of 1954 and next week, we'll close out the year. So grab a handful of nickels, 'cause you're gonna need 'em to keep the "Juke In The Back" jumping as we highlight the momentous year of 1954.
1. Swanee River Boogie - Albert Ammons - Mercury 1947 2. Honey Hush - Joe Turner & His Band - Atlantic 1953 3. You're So Fine - Little Walter & His Jukes - Checker 1953 4. The Things That I Used To Do - Guitar Slim & His Band - Specialty 1954 5. I'll Be True - Faye Adams - Herald 1954 6. Good, Good Whiskey - Amos Milburn & His Aladdin Chickenshackers - Aladdin 1954 7.

WIBG PHILADELPHIA DROPS RELICS AND RARITIES SHOW IN UNCOOL WAY!
It's sad to see how some radio stations treat there DJ's. And those that provide the programming and mistakes they make in cancelling music that keeps the music alive. A couple of week's ago I read about Rock-it Radio DJ: Dave Kapulsky (Dave the Rave) and how his programming was cancelled without even a e mail - We are happy to say that Rock-it Radio still airs and will continue to air his show as long as he likes. It is considered top notch in our book! And a huge mistake by those in Charge at WIBG. Here is the final mention from Dave on his Facebook page below.
WIBG Wibbage FM 94.3 Final Update: Please read this entire message. I have had some discussions with the owner, Rick Brancadora, these past few days, and I have been informed that the station has indeed terminated my Relics & Rarities Show, as it does not fit the format of this station. I have indeed insisted on maintaining the integrity of the music heard on my Relics & Rarities specialty show. I play the hits and the records that deserve that second chance on the radio! One of the oddest mistruths of this episode though was being told that the station received no calls, and no emails about my show's termination. This was later revised to just a few, but only from internet listener's and I assume that means you don't count. I know in my heart that a non-response to the termination of my Relics & Rarities Show to the radio station is a complete fabrication. But if it made the Program Director or anyone else there feel better to stake such a claim, then I'm all about making people feel better. I prefer accomplishing that by the music I play, but for those at Wibbage (WIBG) if it is accomplished by the lies you tell, I will be happy for you as well. I most regret not being able to say goodbye to the listeners, and thanking them for tuning in to my show over the last 5 years and working with the four different time changes that my show experienced. To the listeners that will see this message, THANK YOU! You can insult my intelligence by telling me that nobody cared about my show's termination, but I will take the high road, as that is how I live my life, and say a final thank you to WIBBAGE, and my last five years on your station. Rave On!
