LANE QUIGLEY AND THE MEMORY LANE SHOW ON ROCK-IT RADIO SHOW #4976 - TRIBUTE TO GERRY GOFFIN
Every week, The Memory Lane Show relives the Spirit of The Golden Age of Top 40 Radio. If you bought 45's from that era and looked at the small print on the label, you'd often see the name Gerry Goffin as a composer or occasional producer. Mostly with his first wife Carole King, but occasionally with other collaborators, Goffin was responsible for a slew of great hits and even more forgotten and underappreciated gems. Gerry Goffin passed away in June at age 75, and on this week's program host Lane Quigley takes a look at the life and music of this great lyricist. The playlist is a mix of big hits, lesser hits and rarities. The show includes his own demo recording of one of his best-loved tunes, comments from a number of artists, and a mind-blowing montage featuring 20 of Goffin's best known tunes, which illustrates how many different musical styles with which he had hits.
1. This Little Girl - Dion 1963 2. I've Got To Use My Imagination - Gladys Knight & The Pips 1973-74 SOUND BITE 3. Will You Love Me Tomorrow - The Shirelles 1960 4. I Couldn't Say No - Connie Stevens 1962 5. Don't Ever Change - The Crickets 1962 SOUND BITE 6. He's In Town - The Tokens 1964 7. I Can't Stay Mad at You - Skeeter Davis 1963 SOUND BITE 8.

============================================== MATT THE CAT AND THE JUKE IN THE BACK WITH A TRIBUTE TO ROSCOE GORDON ON SHOW #4977
This week the Juke in the Back remembers the Prince of Primitive Cool - Roscoe Gordon. His mostly self-penned tunes, feature his unique blend of mid-tempo shuffle with a slightly behind-the-beat rolling barrelhouse piano line. He was a master at making his recordings sound rough, but there was also a lot of blues sophistication buried under the simplicity. In his early recording days at RPM Records, his name was spelled Roscoe. He would later revert back to its original spelling of Rosco. His 2nd RPM release hit the national R&B top ten in 1951, but it was 1952's 'Booted' and No More Doggin' that put Gordon at the forefront of Rhythm & Blues popularity. His biggest hit came in 1959 with 'Just A Little Bit' on Vee-Jay. It hit #2 on the R&B lists and crossed over to #64 on the Pop Chart. More people bought this record than of his others. Rosco Gordon is often overlooked, but this week Matt The Cat sets the record straight. He was an innovator, influencing the Jamaican Ska movement of the early '60s, a hit maker and a unique and talented bluesman. Gordon's records spin on this week's Juke in the Back.
1. Swanee River Boogie - Albert Ammons â€" Mercury 1947 2. Roscoe's Boogie - Roscoe Gordon & His Orch â€" RPM 1951 3. Saddled The Cow (And Milked The Horse) - Roscoe Gordon & His Orch â€" RPM 1951 4. Booted - Roscoe Gordon & His Orch â€" RPM 1952 5. Cold Cold Winter - Roscoe Gordon & His Orch â€" RPM 1952 6. No More Doggin' - Roscoe Gordon & His Orch â€" RPM 1952 7.

ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME EVICTS THE ASHES OF ALAN FREED.
ALAN FREED's ashes are in the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME, but the pioneering DJ who named the music is being evicted by the Hall, his son LANCE FREED told the CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER.
FREED, who is picking up the ashes TODAY (8/4), told the paper that the Hall's Pres./CEO GREG HARRIS told him, "people walk past the exhibit and your dad's ashes and they scratch their heads and can't figure out what this thing is, and we'd like you to come pick up the ashes." HARRIS told the PLAIN DEALER that only the ashes are being removed, not other FREED artifacts, that the plan was to return the ashes to the family all along, and that the display where the ashes have been residing will include a pair of FREED's microphones.
But LANCE FREED told the paper that the move is "pushing (his father) to the side. It's making him part of the passing parade, rather than a place where people can say, 'hey this is the guy who helped start it all.'" He said that the family will locate a CLEVELAND cemetery for the remains.
FREED's career exploded in the 1950s when he hosted at WJW-AM CLEVELAND; after stints at WINS-A and WABC-A/NEW YORK, the payola scandal of 1959 ended his ascent, and he passed away at 43 in 1965.
