MATT THE CAT AND THE JUKE IN THE BACK SHOW WITH
JUKEBOX 1945 ON ROCK-IT RADIO SHOW #5264
Charles Brown: 1949-52
Charles Brown was the King of the Smoky Blues for over 50 years.
Growing up in Texas City, TX, he studied classical piano while
focusing his interests on science, becoming a chemistry teacher
for a short time. A move to Los Angeles in 1943, hooked him up
with Johnny Moore, who hired him to sing and play piano with
The Three Blazers. Right out of the gate, they scored a huge,
#2 R&B record in 1946 with Driftin Blues and would go
on to hit the top ten no less than 10 times over the next
2 years. This week's Juke in the Back focuses on Charles Brown's
career after he left Johnny Moore's Three Blazers in 1948.
As a solo artist, Brown kept the hits coming, racking up 5
top 10 records in 1949 alone. He scored 2 #1s with "Trouble Blues"
in 1949 and Black Night in 1951, 2 of the best selling records
in their respective years of release. Brown's star began to
fade as Rock n' Roll entered the mainstream during the mid-1950s,
but he would have a giant comeback in the 1980s and 1990s,
finally getting inducted into the Rock n' Roll Hall Of Fame in 1999.

COME REMEMBER WOLFMAN JACK !!!
Rock-it Radio has a very special way to remember Wolfman Jack.
Arguably the most iconic of American DJ's. Come check out the
Rock-it Radio Wolfman Page at:
REMEMBERING OFFSHORE PIRATE RADIO IN THE UK
In the mid 1960s it was difficult for the youth to actually listen to Rock and Roll in the UK. The BBC actually ran only a few hours a weekend to provide the young Brits with this outlet. At night during the week they ventured to even tune into Radio Luxembourg to get there fill, that broadcast rock and pop around the clock.
To fill this void some venture capitalists decided to bring in commercial radio aboard refitted radio ships. And anchor themselves just off into International waters off the English coast. Radio Caroline (named after Caroline Kennedy the U.S. President's daughter at the time) and Radio London being the most famous.
Rock-it Radio has a website dedicated to their ventures and also have actual radio broadcasts available of these offshore pirates. We invite you to check them out our webpage at:
