The Cleftones

This week, Matt The Cat talks to two original members of one of New York’s greatest ’50s vocal groups; The Celftones. You’ll hear lead singer Herbie Cox and sometimes leader and songwriter Berman Patterson speak about segregation, touring with Alan Freed’s Cavalcade of Stars and recording for mobster Morris Levy. It’s the most revealing HARLEM ever!! We’ll dig deep into the vaults to pull out some great, almost forgotten Cleftones sides as well, so don’t miss HARLEM, all week on the 50s on 5.

Monday, 6/23 @ 1pm ET
Tuesday, 6/24 @ 9pm over LA – Midnight over NYC
