MATT THE CAT & THE JUKE IN THE BACK SHOW WITH Pt. 2
A SPOTLIGHT ON CLYDE MC PHATTER ON ROCK-IT SHOW #6025
Clyde McPhatter had one of the sweetest and most powerful
tenor voices in all of Rhythm & Blues and early Rock n' Roll.
His issue throughout his 22 year recording career, was getting
the recognition he thought he deserved. After singing memorable
leads on many hit records for Billy Ward & The Dominoes, Clyde
left because Billy Ward wouldn't put his name on the records or
pay him a fair share of the profits. Ahmet Ertegun of Atlantic
Records was ready to sign McPhatter and give him his own group,
The Drifters. That worked out well as now Clyde had top billing
and a couple #1 records with the Drifters under his belt. In mid-1955,
The Drifters' manager, George Treadwell, convinced Clyde to go out on
his own. His solo career began very successfully as he scored 11
charting records, including 3 #1s in the next 4 years with Atlantic
Records. However, the 1960s proved a tough time for Clyde as he felt
many of his fans had abandoned him. This week, Matt The Cat focuses on
Clyde McPhatter's Atlantic solo sides from 1955-1959. Clyde was a
singer who's style changed as musical styles progressed during the 1950s,
but he never lost his Gospel roots. Dig on Clyde's greatest solo sides
on this week's "Juke In The Back."

Chuck Berry who was the "Prime Cause" of it all.

in chronological order from 1958 ( a time when most but not all
of his most influential recordings were behind him) until his
death on March 18th. 2017.

who covered his ground breaking recordings from 1955 to 1957.
As well relevant parts of his life as it relates to the year or
years under discussion will be covered.
The play list is as follows:
1. It Don't Take But A Few Moments-Chuck Berry 1958

of 5 shows on 5 CD's is now available here at Rock-it

If you are not a member of Ebay that's ok e mail us
at Rockitradio@netzero.net and we will gladly send you

will forever be remembered as part of the roots of Americana
Rock and Roll. Living in New Orleans it was believed at
one point that Fats Domino perished during Hurricane Katrina
as spray painted on plywood at his heavily flooded New Orleans

his home in Louisiana of natural causes on the morning of
October 24, 2017.
TRIAL RUN FOR ROCK-IT RADIO LISTENER'S ONLY
VINTAGE BROADCASTS ON FLASHDRIVE
It's hard to believe but we realize that perhaps our
declining sales is due to Compact Discs are a
aging medium. And Flashdrives And digital is where it's
at. So, I am going to make this offer just on a trial
basis for the remainder of 2017. If you would prefer to
have Rock-it Radio shows and vintage radio shows that we
offer for sale on Flashdrive in mp3 format rather then
on CD we can provide that service here at Rock-it Radio.
Here it is how it works:
1. E mail me at email@example.com and let me
know what shows you would like to have on Flashdrive.
Let's make it a minimum of 3 broadcasts. Either any
Rock-it Radio show .... or Vintage Radio Show from the
50s through 70s that we offer at:
2. The Cost: Flashdrive will cost $5.00 and each show
that you wish to have will cost $5.00 - nearly 50% CHEAPER then on
3. I will send you back a invoice within a couple of days, It will be
sent via paypal and it is not obligatory. If you change your mind
just don't pay. But it is easy to pay with any major credit card.
4. Please allow up to 7 days for me to fill the order. Once payment
is sent. In case I get swamped with this offer. Probably sooner.
I have to redigitalize all sold shows into MP3 and that takes a little
bit of time. All orders will have $3.00 postage a slight increase but
that is due to it is shipped as a package and not envelope since it will
be over a 1/4" thick.
For example you order: 3 of our Alan Freed Radio shows. And a Real Don
Steele show. A total of 4 shows - That would normally be a cost of $40.00
on CD. All together on one flashdrive so the invoice would look like
- Flashdrive $5.00
- Four Shows on Flashdrive @ $5.00 each - $20.00
- shipping $3.00
Of course if you order more shows on the flashdrive you would continue saving
as you are paying the $5.00 per show rather then $9.50.
And of course we will be adding the monthly giveaway as well.
So for a invoice again just e mail me your wants on your flashdrive for
shows on mp3 at: firstname.lastname@example.org

|DOMESTIC ORDERS FOR ROCK-IT RADIO SAVE 25% BY USING YOUR|
Every order Rock-it Radio receives for a vintage Radio Broadcast or a Rock-it
Radio Show or Flashdrive. We include a Catalog along with a coupon that allows
you to get 4 CD's for the price of 3. 25% savings. It isn't used much though and
we are wondering why. It does have to be by mail order and their is a order sheet
in the back of the catalog. We pass the savings along as we are charged less from
Ebay and Paypal when we get our orders in through the Catalog. As they don't take
out their portions they charge. So if you like to purchase more from Rock-it Radio
think about doing the old fashioned way afterall we are a old fashiioned station and
it might take 3 or 4 days more but you will be saving money through the coupon.
Our apologies we can't do this for overseas orders but we are already taking a huge
hit on postage that we also have to absorb mailing overseas.

EFFECTIVE THIS JANUARY.
We received past word this last week that Rock-it Radio
DJ Jammin' James Riley is ceasing the Surf Rock Radio show
that aired on Rock-it Radio the "Catch a Wave" Radio Show.
James stated that their is just not enough time to produce
two 3 hour shows a week with interviews etc. and decided to
focus on the more popular show of the Rockabilly n Blues
Radio show that will of course be airing on Rock-it Radio.
And we will be airing Catch a Wave Radio show until the final
broadcast of course as well.

LONG RUNNING, POPULAR LOS ANGELES OLDIES RADIO SHOW IS
MOVING TO ROCK-IT RADIO!
We delighted to announce that long-time Los Angeles
DJ John "Cooch" Minnicucci will be bringing his popular
"John's Attic" program to Rock-it Radio. Cooch has been
bringing R&B, Doo Wop, Rockabilly and Rock 'n' Roll to
Southern California listeners for over twenty years,
but a recent format change on his radio station ended
this run. However, LA Radio's loss is our gain, because this
legendary program will now be carried exclusively on Rock-it Radio.
Be on the lookout for the debut of "John's Attic" on Rock-it Radio.
We will keep you posted on when his first show airs along with

November to place your order. Thank you ... incidentally
here is a playlist of that show.
MATT THE CAT AND THE JUKE IN THE BACK SHOW WITH
A TRIBUTE TO FATS DOMINO Pt. 1 ON SHOW #4566
Fats Domino Pt. 2 (1953-55)
The "Juke In The Back" is proud to feature Fats Domino, one
of the most influential and popular recording stars of both
Rhythm & Blues and Rock n' Roll music. Fats' streak of hit
records was nearly unbroken from 1950-1963 and he did it without
changing his core sound. He just kept on playin' the New Orleans
boogie woogie music that he grew up with. Antoine "Fats" Domino Jr.
got his first recording contract in early December of 1949 as bandleader
Dave Bartholomew introduced him to Lew Chudd, the head of LA's Imperial
Records. Within days, they were in Cosimo Matassa's famous J&M studios
cutting Fats' first record, "The Fat Man," which sold over one million
copies and made him a star. In part two of this two part series, Matt
The Cat will spin the A and B sides of EVERY Fats Domino R&B charting
single from mid-1953 thru his enormous crossover success in 1955 with
"Ain't It A Shame." That record not only spent 11 weeks on top of the
R&B charts, but it also crossed over and hit #10 on the Pop charts.
Pat Boone would take his cover version to #1, thus giving Fats Domino
even more Pop exposure. This show will also feature some great non-charting
records and fabulous instrumentals from this time period as well.
So c'mon and dig the R&B roots of Fats Domino, this week on the
"Juke In The Back."

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:

1000s of stations around the world now broadcast online. We have a
link to some of the internet top directories to help you find these stations.
Rock-it Radio Program Webpage Reminder
Remember, if the show that you want to hear is getting close to the bottom
of the list of radio shows, you should tune in as soon as you can. These shows
to have a high audio quality require a lot of internet bandwidth and memory.
And currently we can only afford the
latest shows online here at Rock-it Radio.
So, when a new show is put online it knocks the oldest one off the Rock-it Radio
archives page. Usually a show will at least last 16 to 20 days, once it is placed in
OUR SISTER STATION FIRST NATIONS BROADCASTING.
We invite you to also check out our sister station -- First Nations
Broadcasting. And tune into the rather Cool North of the Yukon and Alaska
with our very own Debbie Snowdove!
Well that is just about it for this newsletter and playlists of our latest
shows. We hope that you enjoy them.
We will do our best to keep these shows on for at least 14
days and hopefully 21 days.
All the best always,
