Part 2

Matt The Cat finishes his review of The King Records R&B; Story with part 2 of 2 on this week’s Harlem. We’ll dig deep in the vaults and shine the spotlight on the great vocal groups, band leaders and blues shouters that came out of the King label before the rock n’ roll “explosion” of the mid-1950s. You’ll hear Little Willie John, Wynonie “Mr. Blues” Harris, Roy Brown, The “5” Royales, The Swallows and many more. Only King Records spin on my turntable this week.

Harlem Airs on XM-5:
Monday, 7/17 @ 1pm EST
Tuesday, 7/18 @ 9pm PST & midnight EST
Friday, 7/21 @ 6pm EST
Sunday, 7/23 @ 11am EST

It’s never been questioned, but I think we can all see that Yum Yum’s devotion to the Night Prowl Show is strong and real. This photo shows how The Yum is actually driving around the NY/NJ metro area. Let’s hope he doesn’t get pulled over.
