here on the 29th January, so it will be available for a while. Unlike some other Rock-It shows, nothing particularly rare but a very high quotient of doo wop records which I had loved for a long time. There isn't a tracklist on the website yet but if you haven't dipped your toe into the chilly waters of doo wop yet it could be a good place to start.
And for those wishing to hear the music of the late Johnny Otis, there are two separate shows commemorating his music currently on Rock-It - I don't imagine he will feature on Radio 2 over the following week, somehow. And where else would I have found out that his recording of Harlem Nocturne was a standard arrangement, as recorded earlier by Ray Noble, only speeded up a little by Otis?
Although I've mentioned Rock-It from time to time in this blog, I don't think I've been vocal enough in my appreciation. Do check it out if you like fifties/early sixties music, as you will find a huge amount to entertain you. There is merchandise you can buy on the website or you can buy good quality CDs of the shows - the downloads are pretty lo-fi, although for me that's part of the charm.
I didn't mean chilly, did I? I meant murky. Sonic murk.
