============================================== MATT THE CAT AND THE JUKE IN THE BACK SHOW ON ROCK-IT RADIO SHOW #4838 - SPOTLIGHT ON JUKEBOX 1954 Pt. 2
1954: Jukebox Rhythm Review, Pt. 2
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 Chords, The Charms, The Five Keys and The Drifters were forging a new sub-genre that would come to be called Doo Wop. This week in part 2, Matt The Cat focuses on the biggest jukebox hits of the second half of 1954. 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.

============================================== AL COOL DADDY SMITH WITH A R&B TRIBUTE TO JACK MCVEA ON ROCK-IT RADIO SHOW #4840
This show is the first of a two part series on the recordings of R&B pioneer Jack McVea. Probably best known for his hit record of Open the Door Richard in 1957, he was much more than just a one hit wonder. He had an outstanding career both as a Jazz and an R&B sax player. As well he was the leader of his own band that recorded separately from the many artists that he and or his band backed. Such artists as T-Bone Walker, Wynonie Harris, Lionel Hampton, The Savoys,The Laurels etc. all benefited from his expertise. As well Jack McVea participated in arguably the first two Rock and Roll records playing as he did on Lionel Hampton song Flying Home in 1942 and Blues Parts One and Two recorded at Jazz At The Philharmonic (JATP) in 1944. These shows will feature both his work as a band leader as well as his efforts as a participant in the music of others. It is long overdue that this under rated but supremely important contributor to Rock and Roll was featured on Rock-it Radio. The wait is over.
The play list is as follows:
1. Bar Tender Boogie Jack McVea and His All Stars 1945 2. Wino-Jack McVea and His All Stars 1945 3. House Party Boogie-Jack McVea and His All Stars 1946 4. Frisco Blues-Jack McVea and His All Stars 1945 5. Flying Home- Lionel Hampton and His Orchestra 1942 6. Yaka Boo-Jack McVea and His Orchestra 1955 7. Tarrant Blues-Jack McVea and His All Stars 1945 8. We're Together Again-Jack McVea and His All Stars 1945 9. Tequila Hop-Jack McVea and His Orchestra 1954 10. No Worry Blues - T-Bone Walker 1946 11. Don't Worry Baby-T-Bone Walker 1946 12. Crows Being Evicted-Jack McVea and His Door Openers 1947 13. Open The Door Richard-Jack McVea and His All Stars 1946/47 14. Chop Chop Boom-Jack McVea and His Orchestra with The savoys 1955 15. The Key's In The Mail Box-Jack McVea and His Door Openers 1947 16. Yacka Hoom Boom-Jack McVea and His Orchestra with The Savoys 1955 17. Inflation Blues-Jack McVea and His Door Openers 1947 18. Fine Fine Baby-Jack McVea and His Orchestra with The Laurels 1955 19.
