Tonight It’s
Alan & Jesse

Alan Freed, the DJ who coined the term rock n’ roll and did more for the mainstreaming of rhythm and blues music than anyone else, was born on this day in 1922. We’ll hear some rare airchecks from his early DJing days at WJW in Cleveland from 1952 and 1953.

Jesse Belvin, one of the greatest voices in all of 1950s rhythm and blues was born on this day in 1932. We’ll hear many of his own great songs as well as songs that he sang on without getting credit for.

2 legends are honored, tonight on the NIGHT PROWL SHOW!

Wednesday Night:

The Night Prowl Show

Brenda Lee turned 61 on Sunday. We honor that little pint of dynomite in typical Night Prowl fashion.

Big Mama Thorton was born on 12/11 back in 1926 and we cats n’ kittens have got to pay respect to one of the greatest R&B; singers of all time.

Sam Cooke is shot to death on 12/11 back in 1964 and we’ll look back with the help of author Peter Guralnick who has just written a book about Sam Cooke entitled “Dream Boogie”.

Connie Francis turned 67 on Monday. We’ll do a little somethin’ special for one of the cutest voices of ’50s and ’60s rock n’ roll.

All This and your requests & dedications, Wednesday Night on the Night Prowl Show.
