This week’s Harlem is beyond words. That’s because it features a solid hour of rhythm & blues instrumentals. You’ll hear the LA honkers Big Jay McNeely and Joe Houston, pianists Ray Charles and Fats Domino and guitarist T-Bone Walker, just to name a few. You’ll be speechless with 1950s instrumental R&B; on Harlem.

HARLEM airs on the 50s on 5:
Monday 3/26 @ 1pm EST
Tuesday 3/27 @ 9pm over LA – Midnight over NYC
Friday 3/30 @ 6pm EST
Sunday 4/1 @ 11am EST

Keep on keepin’ on, cats n’ kittens!

The Night Prowl Invades The Pacific Ocean!

The First Night Prowl Reunion!

I’ve been asked by The Truckin’ Bozo (XM 171) to emcee the oldies show aboard his yearly cruise and you’re invited. This Norwegian Cruise will leave Los Angeles and make stops along The Mexican Riviera for 8 days (February 12-20, 2008). Come join Bozo, myself, Freddy “Boom Boom” Cannon, Carl Dobkins Jr. and JIMMIE RODGERS as we soak up the sun and fun on the high seas. For years, Night Prowlers have been asking me to have a Night Prowl Reunion so all the regular Prowlers can meet each other. Well, here’s your chance to talk food with Yum Yum, drink beer with The Real George and let Long Island Bob tell you his life story. You can finally meet Cross Country Kelly, in the flesh. You will meet the only people to get married LIVE on The Night Prowl Show (Rockin’ Rick and Judy Judy), eat some great food and see some great live performances (Boom Boom).

Reservations for cabins are going fast. Call 800-815-8893, Mon Thru Fri between 9am and 5pm only, but call soon.

Make sure you tell them that you are WITH the Night Prowl Show!

More info at SS Travel:

I hope everyone can make it.

Cabins are double occupency. If you want to go alone and need to find a Prowler to room with, go to the Plattah Chattah Forum and post for one.

You will need a valid Passport to travel on this cruise.

The Checkers formed at the end of 1951, when Charlie White and Bill Brown left The Dominoes. Get it! They left the Dominoes and formed THE CHECKERS. Yeah well, they picked up a few other guys and they were off recording for King Records. After 3 years together and no hits, they called it quits. But what they left behind is a treasure trove of 1950s rhythm and blues. Get the story behind the Checkers and some of their greatest recordings on this week’s HARLEM.
