11th September

Nappy Brown

Matt The Cat interviews one of rhythm and blues’ living legends, Nappy Brown. He was there for the rock n’ roll revolution and did his part with his mid-1950s hits for Herman Lubinsky’s Savoy Record Label. He tells the story behind the story of R&B; classics like “Don’t Be Angry”, “The Right Time” (which he cut before Ray Charles), “Little By Little” and “Open Up That Door”, as well as some revealing tales of what it was like to tour in the 1950s and work with the miserly Lubinsky. Don’t miss Nappy Brown, all week on Harlem.
