1955: Jukebox Rhythm Review, Pt. 1
The old Rockola Jukebox is back in the spotlight as we present
part 1 of a 2 part feature on the biggest R&B jukebox records of 1955.
It was a year of many firsts. 1955 was the first full year of
Rhythm & Blues records consistently crossing over into the Pop Chart.
Matt The Cat will point out just how popular some of these records were
in the Pop Market. 1955 was also the debut year for Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry and Etta James.
It was the last year for Johnny Ace, who scored the biggest hit of his career, posthumously. 1955 was the year of Blackboard Jungle's tremendous success in helping to deliver Rock N Roll music to the mainstream through the popularity of its theme song, (We're Gonna) Rock Around The Clock.

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:
