BILLY VERA ROCK AND ROLL PARTY FOCUS ON KING
RECORDS ON ROCK-IT RADIO SHOW #6236
Since you all have been listening to my old radio shows on
Rock-it radio, Lane Quigley thought I should do something new.
So I came up with the idea of doing a tribute to one of my
favorite record companies, King Records of Cincinnati.
King began as a "hillbilly" label, to service the country folks who'd
moved across the Ohio River from Kentucky. As King became
successful, they decided to put out black popular music as well.
This show features the best artists in both idioms from the
late 1940s until early 1955. Mainly under the supervision of
Henry Glover, acts like Bullmoose Jackson, the Delmore Brothers,
Wynonie Harris, Tiny Bradshaw, Moon Mullican, LaVern Baker,
Jack Dupree and Little Willie John sold tons of records.
On the West Coast, A&R man Ralph Bass, brought with him Little Esther,
Jimmy Witherapoon, Young John Watson and East Coast vocal group
the Dominoes, featuring Clyde McPhatter and Jackie Wilson.
King was a label that should be recognized as right up there with
Atlantic, Chess, Aladdin and Specialty.
1. I Want a Bow Legged Woman - Bull Moose Jackson

CLEARWATER REVIVAL ON ROCK-IT RADIO SHOW #6244

The remainder of their sixth Album "Pendulum" will be played as well
as all of their seventh and final album "Mardi Gras" that they
recorded for Fantasy Records. It was "Mardi Gras" and the way it was

a three man group. The reasons for this and other difficulties that
faced the group are discussed along with the playing of these albums.
Some recordings by John Fogerty as a solo act will be played as well.
The Play List is as follows:

MATT THE CAT & THE JUKE IN THE BACK SHOW WITH A
TRIBUTE TO VITA RECORDS ON ROCK-IT RADIO
The Juke In The Back is jumpin' this week with records from the Vita Label
and its direct predecessor, Mambo Records. In 1955, record producer
Mike Gradney got together with Larry Mead, who owned a record pressing
plant in Pasadena, CA to form Mambo Records. They picked that name, because
the Mambo was all the rage in '55. Mambo hit the ground running with a
roster of fantastic R&B cats, like Willie Egan (who's name always appeared
on record as either Eggins or Egans), saxophonist Jackie Kelso and vocal groups
the Squires and The Colts. Just as Mambo issued The Colts, "Adorable," they
decided that disc jockeys might get confused and think Mambo Records was a
Latin label instead of an R&B label. They changed Mambo to Vita and reissued
"Adorable" as Vita 112. "Adorable" was Vita's first hit record and The Colts
only hit record. More Vita releases from The Colts, The Squires, Harmonic Slim,
Ike Turner and The Titans followed. In late 1956, Vita had a huge hit on
their hands when "Confidential" by Sonny Knight took off nationally. Vita
couldn't handle the distribution of such a large seller, so they leased
the record out to Dot Records. The tide started turning for Vita in 1957
and Gradney left Mead to form his own label, Spry Records. Unfortunately,
he took some of Vita's best artists with him and by 1959, Mead decided to
shut Vita down for good. This week's Juke In The Back is a look into
the musical legacy of Vita Records, another small West Coast label that made
a significant contribute to Rhythm & Blues and the formation of Rock n' Roll.
1. Swanee River Boogie - Albert Ammons & His Rhythm Kings - Mercury 1947

BENNIE DINGO HOSPITALIZED PROGRAMMING TEMPORARILY
SEIZES FOR ROCK-IT RADIO
First of all thank you all again for your patience
here at Rock-it Radio and our lack of programming.
And the patience of our DJs as well. I was once
again hospitalized with breathing and lung problems.
And noticed I had gained 25 lbs. in 10 days!!
Fluids were once again building up in my lungs,
but upon my return home I have lost get this
50 lbs. in 15 days most being I am sure those liquids.
We have strict doctor orders that we are following to
the tee. And hopefully my last hospital visit in a
long long time. And now looking forward to getting
Rock-it Radio back on a regular schedule.
NEGATIVE FEEDBACK ON ROCK-IT RADIO E BAY STORE
It was a simple misunderstanding that we could
of easily fixed. We do have a 100% Satisfaction
guarantee. But when David Johnson of Alameda, Calif.
bought 5 CDs from us he was under the impression he
could get flat rate shipping, which he would have
if he ordered all the shows at once rather then one
at a time. We refunded his money but he still left
4 negative feedbacks. Rock-it Radio attempted to
ask him to kindly remove the feedbacks but he refused
saying people need to know what you are doing.
We attempted to contact him again to no avail.
This dropped our 100% rating on Ebay down to 99.7%
Believe it or not in the world of Ebay that actually
matters. We are currently trying to rectify the feedback
through e bay and have our paws crossed.
In the mean time please remember when you help Rock-it
Radio by a purchase of our Ebay Store. (Ebay user:
Rockitradionet) We do just like in the Launching Pad
of Rock-it Radio offer 100% guarantee.
RIP LORRIE COLLINS AND ARETHA FRANKLIN
Last month we lost 2 great lady legends of music.
They were both on separate genres and we will miss
them both. Lorrie Collins of the Collins Kids and
then Aretha Franklin of Motown and her own fame.
The music we play here at Rock-it Radio the performers
are thinning out so make sure to catch those that are
still still out there performing.
ROCK-IT RADIO LISTENER'S
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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: email@example.com

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,
