written by Matt The Cat

This week, we’ll focus on the heyday of Atlantic: The 1950s.

Atlantic Records

Part 2
Atlantic Records co-founder Ahmet Ertegun once again joins Harlem’s Matt The Cat as we focus on the heyday of Atlantic; the early to mid 1950s. Mr. Ertegun will give us the story behind the story on Big Joe Turner, LaVern Baker, Ray Charles and Chuck Willis, just to name a few. This is the story of the most influential and significant rhythm & blues record label of all time. Don’t miss Harlem; the soul that came before rock n’ roll.
